Essay Scholarship

  Eligibility: All high school seniors, current students attending a University or College, and Technical/Trade School students.  Should a student

   win the scholarship, they must attend the College, University, or Technical/Trade school as full-time students.

  General: All applications (click LVHCC Education Form 101 to get the updated 2019 form) and documents identified on the application 

   will be submitted to the LVHCC Education Committee at P.O. Box 97891 Las Vegas, NV 89193-7891.  Use the back of the application if

   more space is needed.  The Education Committee will review all application packages and recommend award of the scholarship to the most

   qualified applicant.

  Grade Point Average (GPA): All applicants shall have a minimum GPA of 2.5 – 2.7 cumulative unweighted (upon graduation from High

   School and for the current school year in other learning institutions for all others).

  Deadline for all applications is August 24.  Scholarship is usually awarded at the Annual Pacific Islander Festival & Ho’olaule’a in

   September; however, this year (2019) we won't be having Ho'olaule'a (see Ho'olaule'a tab for more information) and are planning to award

   this scholarship at an event to be designated.

  The scholarship awardee should plan to attend two LVHCC functions during the academic year in support of the LVHCC scholarship program.

  For example, attending a General Membership Meeting and letting those in attendence know what they have been doing and how the

  scholarship assisted their education.

  Verification of college enrollment (class schedule) will be required before any monies are disbursed.  Scholarship funds are normally applied

   toward tuition, fees and other appropriate educational expenses.
