To Apply for the 2022 $1,000 Scholarship

Hawaii Island Landscape Association is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020 HILA Vic Paulson Scholarship.

First year Kapiolani Community college student Kiana Lei Vallente was awarded a $1000 scholarship based on her excellent performance as a scholar and as an engaged community member. Kiana plans to transfer to U.H. Hilo to pursue a degree in agriculture.

Hawaii Community college students Lopeka Ka’ili and Suzette Sakarias were both awarded $500. Both students are in the Agriculture program at HCC.

HILA typically grants two annual awards of $1000 each, but in 2020 we had three great applicants and decided that Kiana deserved the full award and that the two HCC students deserved to share one award.
