HONOLULU, HAWAII (December 2, 2019) – As part of its commitment to improve the community through education, Chaminade University has introduced new scholarships for incoming students. The University will award $5,000 scholarships to new students who wish to pursue master’s degrees or online bachelor’s degrees in eligible programs.
“The legacy of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade is one that embraces education as a way to change society and ensure a community of justice and reconciliation,” said Dr. Lynn Babington, President of Chaminade University. “These new scholarships will enable new students to contribute to the fabric of Hawaii in honor of our longstanding tradition and commitment to improve the communities in which we live and serve.”
The $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to new full-time students. Among the eligible master’s degrees are teaching, business administration, education, criminal justice administration, and pastoral theology. The scholarships for bachelor’s students are exclusively for online programs and span a wide range of majors.
To apply, applicants are asked to explain how they serve the community when completing their scholarship applications. The deadline to apply for Winter 2020 is December 20, 2019, and the deadline for Spring 2020 is March 20, 2020. The scholarship is available to new students only and cannot be combined with existing institutional partnerships or agreements.
In addition to expanding its incoming student scholarships, Chaminade University continues to provide a variety of other scholarships including many endowed awards for current students. This provides eligible students the opportunity for financial support beyond the first few terms and well into the completion of their program.
