Student Support

Public Administration can offer several different kinds of support for students. While our resources are limited it is possible each year to provide assistance on the basis of both academic merit and financial need.

The Herman S. Doi Memorial Fellowship - In honor of the late founder of the Hawai'i State Ombudsman Office, Herman S. Doi, the fellowship was established for those committed to serving the community through innovative, socially responsible work. The Herman S. Doi Fellowship aims to assist those Master's and Certificate students of the Public Administration Program as well as provide support for the practicum component of the Master's in Public Administration. Applications open in the spring on the STAR website immediately after admissions decisions are finalized.*

D. William Wood Pacific Island Health Administrators Endowed Scholarship - The Pacific Island Health Administrators Endowed Scholarship was initially established with generous donations by Professor D. William Wood, MPH, Ph.D. The primary purpose of the Scholarship is to assist in the education and training of Pacific Island health administrators who are seeking the Master’s of Public Administration degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Applications open in the spring on the STAR website.*

Chandler Fellowship (New, 2015 incoming students).
