With tuition prices on the rise, attending college can be a struggle for many people, especially for those living in an expensive state like Hawaii.
Now, the University of Hawaii is working with community partners to help Native Hawaiian residents obtain the financial aid they need to attend any of the ten UH campuses.
McKinley High School hosted the 'aha financial aid workshop on Tuesday for Native Hawaiians who are considering attending college.
The University of Hawaii is teaming up with several Native Hawaiian agencies to get the word out about 18 million dollars that's available each year in scholarships and even stipends to cover living expenses.
More workshops are scheduled to provide more information on federal financial aid forms and resources.
