Financial Aid is available through the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Financial Aid Services to UHM students only.

Starting Fall 2021, UH Mānoa will begin enforcing Course Program of Study (CPoS), which is a process to keep in compliance with federal regulations on financial aid. This means that financial aid can only be awarded to courses required for a student’s degree program. Study abroad programs do not fall under this requirement, but certain conditions do apply in order to receive aid. Below is a quote from the Federal Student Aid Handbook (2020-2021) regarding study abroad programs:

“The study-abroad program does not have to be a required part of the eligible program at the home school for the student to be eligible to receive FSA funds, but the credits earned through the study-abroad or exchange program must apply toward graduation in the student’s program at the home school. In addition, students in the study-abroad program must remain concurrently enrolled at their home school.”

For application and more information, please visit Financial Aid Services and check their lists of scholarships.
