Program areas at University of Hawaii Foundation

Student Aid and Services - UHF raises and distributes money for student aid, scholarships, fellowships, grants and awards to help students fulfill their academic potential and ensure our state has the skilled professionals it needs to flourish. These include merit-based scholarships, need-based scholarships, study abroad opportunities and programs that help build international bridges and cultural versatility. Fellowships help UH attract and retain outstanding students whose research and contributions to our world are key to a vibrant future.
Special Programs - Donor designated accounts support a range of academic and non-academic initiatives/programs. These include visiting distinguished lecturers and professorships, computer lab support, facilities funds, intramural sports, outreach programs that support lifelong learning and community education, health fairs, workshops, band and mentorship programs. Through fundraising and account management, UHF is a partner in capital improvement projects to bring state-of-the-art facilities, technology and equipment to campuses statewide. Quality facilities and expertly-curated resources nurture healthy learning and productive collaboration. From business education to advanced culinary training, donors are helping open up world-class opportunities and facilities to Hawai'i students. Private funds make it possible for our public university to bring distinguished visiting lecturers and researchers to our campuses. Examples include bringing some of the worlds most highly regarded cancer researchers to work collaboratively in our research laboratories with UH scientists. While they are here, the prominent researchers, including Nobel laureates, deliver a major lecture at the University of Hawai'i Cancer Center. Private support funds this extraordinary opportunity for UH faculty, students and staff, to meet and interact with some of the most prominent scientists whose work has saved many lives and establish research collaborations with them. Other distinguished lecture series support Hawai'i's dialogue with the rest of the world in areas including local entrepreneurship, international women?s leadership, global technology, the integration of science and culture, and indigenous language/cultural issues.
Research - scientific, technical, humanistic investigation, individual and/or project research as well as grants for institutes and research centers. The University of Hawai'i Foundation (UHF) helps fuel research and innovation through strategic philanthropic investments. Private support plays a critical role in enabling UH researchers to tackle our world's challenges and improve our quality of life. With its unique geographic location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the rich ethnic diversity and environmental attributes, UH has become a globally recognized leader for its pioneering research in fields such as oceanography, volcanology, astronomy, Pacific Islands and Asian area studies, tropical agriculture, cancer and genetics. UH's highly ranked active research programs serve as a magnet for leading researchers, building UH centers of excellence in areas including microbiomes, endangered and rare plant conservation and climate change.
