School Collaborators

 

Aloha Mai!
 

School Collaborators support the Pauahi Keiki Scholars (PKS) and Kipona Scholarship programs by providing Native Hawaiian keiki educational opportunities in non-Kamehameha private schools throughout the State of Hawai'i.

We encourage private PreK-12 schools in the State of Hawai'i interested in participating in the PKS and Kipona scholarship programs to attend our annual School Collaborators Orientation. The annual School Collaborators Orientation is an opportunity for new and participating schools to hear information on the upcoming school year and review the eligibility requirements. If you would like to receive an invitation to the next School Collaborators Orientation tentatively scheduled for May 2014, please contact a Program Counselor. 

Please find information shared at the most recent School Collaborators Orientation on May 28th, 2013 here:
