E Kala Mai!

 The Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) Online provided by School and Student Services will be new and improved beginning June 2, 2014.  However, due to this transition, the PFS Online will be unavailable from June 10, 2014 through June 15, 2014.  During this time, the online PFS will not be accessible and no documents may be uploaded.  The PFS Online will reopen on June 16, 2014. 

Mahalo for your interest in the Pauahi Keiki Scholars Preschool Scholarship Program (PKS). PKS is a need-based scholarship for eligible keiki who are planning to attend select Non-Kamehameha preschools in Hawai`i. Awards are good for one year, and you must reapply each year.  There are two funding cycles for PKS, therefore two application deadlines. If you do not meet the Cycle 1 deadline, your application will automatically be pushed for Cycle 2 consideration.
