Windward Community College gives scholarships to science students


According to The National Center for Education, an average of 66 percent of all undergraduates receive some type of financial aid. Individuals who wish to study environmental sciences may benefit from enrolling at Windward Community College, as The Lani-Kailua Outdoor Circle awards scholarships to these students annually.

In recent years, the organization has donated as much as $5,000 through the University of Hawai'i Foundation to help fund the Lani-Kailua Outdoor Circle Environmental Studies Scholarship and the Windward Community College Agriculture Scholarship.

"The Lani-Kailua Outdoor Circle cares deeply about the natural resources of Windward O'ahu - including our youth," said Joan Fleming, president of the organization. "We have a long history of being good stewards of our islands' natural environment; as such, we must prepare our youth to become active leaders in respecting and preserving these vital resources."

The Outdoor Circle, which is a nonprofit environmental organization, is dedicated to keeping the state clean, green and beautiful by preserving, protecting and enhancing the environment, according to the school. The University of Hawai'i Foundation aims to raise private philanthropic support for its programs.
