The HPM Foundation also funds the Barney Fujimoto Memorial Scholarship and the Building Future Builders scholarships for second-year students enrolled in the Hawaii Community College Carpentry program.
The Barney S. Fujimoto Memorial Scholarship was established in 1973 to recognize achievement and promote excellence by awarding $1,000 scholarships to select Hawaii Island high school seniors who plan to attend the University of Hawaii. The scholarships are in memory of Barney S. Fujimoto, a past officer of HPM Building Supply who held very strong convictions about the merits of higher education.
Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors from Hawaii Island, Kauai and Oahu who are enrolled full-time at a UH System School. Applicants must be able to show a history of strong community service. Preference will be given to applicants with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Applications for the 2018-2019 school year are now being accepted online ONLY via the University of Hawaii Common Scholarship Application. You do not need to submit a new application if you have already submitted a UH Common Scholarship Application. The application deadline is March 1, 2018.
