UH Mānoa Shidler College of Business Awards 200 Scholarships Totaling Over $1 Million for 2013-2014

The Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa awarded over $1 million in scholarships to more than 200 business students for the 2013-3014 academic year.

The College’s annual Scholarship Luncheon on November 4 recognized donors for their commitment to education and gave the donors and scholarship recipients an opportunity to connect.

This year’s scholarship luncheon featured guest speaker Eddie Flores Jr., president of the L&L restaurant chain. Flores said he was shocked to see 52 recipients of the $1 million endowed scholarship he established at the Shidler College of Business in 2007. This year alone, Flores’ scholarship helped 52 students from the Shidler Freshman Direct Admit Program.

“We are extremely grateful to our alumni, the business community and friends of the College for establishing scholarships for our students,” said V. Vance Roley, dean of the Shidler College of Business. “With the cost of tuition and books, academic scholarships can make a world of difference in the lives of our students.”

Full and partial scholarships are awarded to undergraduate and graduate business students based on academic achievement, financial need, specific area of concentration, community service and/or other criteria established by the donors.
