Scholarship Purpose

South Pacific Islander Organization from time to time holds and administers certain funds that provide scholarships to Pacific Islander scholars who plan on attending institutions of higher education. The purpose of our scholarship is to encourage Pacific Islander students to pursue higher education and decrease their financial burden. Our goal is to see more Pacific Islanders attending institutions of higher education. Our long-term goal is to see Pacific Islander college graduation rates reaching the U.S. national average by 2030. We also hope to increase Pacific Islander college graduation rates around the world.
