Merit Scholarships

Our merit scholarships are awarded to a select number of exceptional boarding applicants, regardless of financial need, and range between $10,000 and a full scholarship.

‘Iolani’s mission is to develop liberally educated, well-rounded individuals who are well prepared for higher education and for responsible, moral citizenship.

Merit scholar recipients come from diverse backgrounds and locations across the United States and around the world, and are considered to be among the most competitive applicants in the admission process each year. Merit scholar recipients demonstrate the potential for leadership, strong commitment to academic excellence, community, and exemplary personal character.

Scholarship recipients will be notified by the March 10 notification date.
