Financial need is the difference between family resources and the educational expenses of a student. We do not award scholarships based on academic, athletic, or artistic merit. To determine a family's ability to pay tuition, we partner with Clarity Financial Aid. Their analysis helps us to objectively determine what a family is able to contribute towards educational expenses and is a critical component in our financial aid decision. Aid is granted on an annual basis to families who show financial need and is renewable each year as long as the family completes the financial aid process in a timely manner and continues to qualify.

The Application

ʻIolani is proud to partner with Clarity, a leader in the financial aid industry. The Clarity Application streamlines the process with an average completion time of 20-30 minutes and gives families the ability to directly download their personal taxes from the IRS. We aim to make the process of applying for aid as easy as possible.
