Rodney P. Santos Scholarship
Rodney P. Santos, retired educator and founding member and former president of the Colleges of Arts & Sciences Alumni Association (CASAA), established a scholarship fund to encourage undergraduate students in their pursuit of a liberal arts education. Up to five (5) students will receive cash awards of $1,000 each to assist them with their education expenses.
CASAA was established in 1993 to “serve as a valuable link between the Colleges and the community in promoting awareness and appreciation of, and pride in, the lifetime value of a liberal arts education obtained from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.”
- Graduate of a Hawai‘i high school
- Full-time junior or senior at UH Mānoa with a declared Arts and Sciences major
- Cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5
- Some degree of financial need
- Already received or intend to receive 50% of the undergraduate degree requirements from UH Mānoa
To be eligible for the Rodney P. Santos Scholarship, a student must be a graduate of a Hawai’i high school; be a full-time junior or senior at UH Manoa with a declared Arts and Sciences major; have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.5; have some degree of financial need; and have already received or intend to receive 50% of the undergraduate degree requirements from UH Manoa.
