The University of Hawai’i System will recognize its 2013 Regents and Presidential Scholars at its annual awards dinner on Thursday, July 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pomaika’i Ballrooms at Dole Cannery in Iwilei.
Regents Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for four years of undergraduate study. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding freshmen who receive an SAT combined score of at least 1950 on all three sections of the test, or ACT combined score of at least 29, maintain at least a 3.5 GPA in academic subjects in high school, and whose extracurricular achievements are shown to be remarkable.
Presidential Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for two years of undergraduate study. These scholarships are awarded to 10 college juniors who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.7 for all college level work, maintain a record of progress in academic courses, and who demonstrate superior academic achievement or creativity.
The UH Board of Regents established the Regents and Presidential Scholarships to support Hawai’i students with a record of outstanding academic achievement. Its intent is to keep the best and brightest of Hawai’i’s students here in the islands and see them enrolled at the University of Hawai’i where they have an opportunity to receive a quality education to support their academic and personal growth.
