The mission of the HACAC Scholars Program is to provide professional development opportunities that support under-resourced and high-impact HACAC members who are helping to facilitate access to higher education for students in the state of Hawaii.
Funding for the HACAC Scholars Program is made available through support from the HACAC Scholars Program and the NACAC Imagine Grant, and various other organizations that support HACAC through generous grants and sponsorships.
Mahalo for considering these opportunities. We hope to see your application soon.
