To support the educational pursuits of our students the Department offers several scholarships. The Ethnic Studies Undergraduate Scholarship has been established to increase the understanding of diversity and social justice. The Ethnic Studies Undergraduate Scholarship is a $1200 award given to an undergraduate student pursuing an Ethnic Studies major or minor. The Hiram and Trudi deFries Scholarship was established in 2014 to provide scholarship support for students intent on pursuing a career to ensure social and economic justice for Hawaiian Home Land communities and/or federally recognized tribes. The Harriet Patsy Boyer Scholarship program has been established to increase opportunities for students to participate in scholarly activities that promote new understanding of women in culture and society. The Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research annually awards up to six $3,000 scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing Women’ Studies minor, concentration, and/or Graduate certificate.
