About the Need for Scholarship Assistance
A recent statewide survey revealed that the number one obstacle to going to college is cost. With the rising cost of tuition, and the fact that over 60% of our students work full time while attending school part-time, student tuition funds truly make an impact on our students ability to strive for a better education, transforming their career options and improving their lives and the lives of those around them.
The enormous need for tuition assistance continues to grow:
- Leeward CC serves the largest number of Native Hawaiian students in the community college system.
- Our students are often the first in their family to attend college.
