About Ēlama Project

Ēlama Project is a very special initiative that makes college possible at Hawai’i Community College - Pālamanui for students who have compelling financial limitations or other barriers to enrollment. The program creates a learning environment that helps West Hawai'i students succeed and provides scholarship and academic support.

Scholarship recipients have an opportunity to try a year (fall & spring semesters) of college for free. Students may decide to attain a certificate, pursue an associate degree, or just try taking a few classes. Upon successful completion of the first year, Ēlama Scholars have access to additional financial assistance up to completion of an associate degree.

Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED and be classified as a Hawai'i resident per University of Hawai'i common application.
