SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Applications are due March 15 and 22 for the Schofield Barracks Hui O Na Wahine all-ranks spouses club’s annual welfare grants and scholarships.

The funds for these awards are generated through Hui fundraisers and the Hui Thrift Shop.

Awards provide recognition of academic and/or community dedication. Last year, more than $130,000 was awarded to more than 10 scholarship recipients and 31 welfare recipients.

“The Thrift Shop is having a great year, and we hope to raise and give away more money in awards this spring,” said Jennifer Kelling, president, Hui O Na Wahine.

Scholarships are available for high school seniors or adult Hui members and family members who are continuing their education. High school seniors must be an immediate family member of a Hui member in good standing.

They must be a graduating high school senior or have graduated within the past two years and haven’t yet attended college, business or trade school. Adult Hui members and family members must be active Hui members in good standing.

Both high school seniors and Hui members must attend an accredited college, business or trade school within the next academic year, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and must not have accepted any four-year scholarship such as military academy appointments, ROTC, athletic scholarships or the like.
