Native Hawaiian students in need to get more help

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ The University of Hawaii is doubling annual need-based financial aid to Native Hawaiians to $5 million by 2010.

UH President David McClain says the initiative will help ensure all Native Hawaiians with financial need will be able to attend the university.

The scholarship is available to Native Hawaiian undergraduate and graduate students with demonstrated financial need at all 10 campuses of the university system.

Last year, more than 3,000 Native Hawaiian students applied for financial aid. Nearly 80 percent received some form of federal state, university or UH Foundation grant or scholarship. The university provided more than $2 million.
