Tuition Waivers for Hawaiian Students In Higher Education. Report No. 2.
Mardfin, Jean Kadooka
This publication presents the results of a mandated state (Hawaii) study of the issues involved in providing tuition waivers to native Hawaiian students at all campuses of the University of Hawaii system. The study sought, in particular, to examine the nature of tuition waivers, the issues to be addressed if such a policy were instituted, and the probable impacts on the university system. Chapter 1 describes the characteristics of the Hawaiian population generally, its educational levels and needs as identified by past surveys, and the population of native Hawaiian students in the University of Hawaii system. Chapter 2 describes tuition waivers as they currently operate at the University of Hawaii; how much income is foregone by the University in providing those waivers; and how many native Hawaiian students potentially might take advantage of a tuition waiver program. This chapter describes a similar program operating in Michigan for North American Indians. Chapter 3 presents the study's findings and identifies the main issues which the Legislature and the University of Hawaii must address if tuition waivers for Hawaiian students are to be implemented. Appendixes contain the pertinent state statutes and the University bylaws and policies. (JB)
