Byu Hawaii is a dream come true.
I love! It is a safe, honest, happy university that really cares about your success. It also has a large number of foreign students, which makes it special and I can call it from my home.
Coming here was not easy, nor fast, that's why I take advantage every day and I appreciate this opportunity to be here.
This is my first semester, and because of being the first, recently arrived in Hawaii and several expenses, I am applying for this scholarship that would help me to settle down and sleep peacefully.
ByuHawaii offers several scholarships, but it is after the first semester.
I will be very grateful to be lucky to win it.
Thank you for the opportunity!
I know that education is important and of great value.

Brigham Young University Hawaii is an incredible university. The atmosphere is very welcoming and there is a rich amount of diversity among the students and staff who attend. The location is in a small community that is safe and beautiful! I love that the university is small because students have the opportunity to develop more of a personal relationship with teachers. The motto of the university is “Enter to learn, and go forth to serve.” I am reminded of this often and it is the foundation of my motivation.
I love BYUH! Class sizes are small which allows for a lot of opportunities to do cool things in your major. The faculty are so willing to help and work with you. It also does not hurt that the school is located on Oahu! There are so many things to do at the beach, in the mountains, or in town. I've been swimming with dolphins more than I can count! And this school offers no shortage of awesome people to do things with! The student body is made up if kids from all over the world but most predominantly from Asia and the Pacific. As a church school it is pretty incredible to see the different perspectives that your peers have on different topics and discussions have always been welcome in the classes I have taken. It is really a unique place to go to school and I absolutely love it!
