To incorporate the values of servant leadership exemplified by our founder, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, Kamehameha Schools (KS) requires all scholarship recipients to complete 50 hours of community service. Failure to meet this requirement may result in a delay in award disbursement for subsequent years.
2019-2020 Community Service Guidelines
- Recipients must perform a minimum of 50 hours of community service from July 1, 2019 through by June 30th, 2020.
- Recipients are responsible for submitting community service information by July 8, 2020.
- Community service may be performed with multiple organizations.
- Community service must meet the following criteria:
- Performed through a non-profit organization,
- Is unpaid,
- Does not benefit Kamehameha Schools’ student/staff/programs,
- Does not benefit political campaigns, programs, or parties,
- Required internship and practicum hours will not be accepted. However, hours in excess of your internship and practicum requirement may be reported as community service as long as the activities meet all other guideline criteria.
Note: Students are encouraged to perform service within their own community for an organization that benefits a Native Hawaiian, indigenous or under-served population.
