The University of Hawai`i Rapa Nui Field School does not offer financial aid. However, if you are a University of Hawai`i student, visit the U.H. Study Abroad Center pages for information on financial aid. In most cases, financial aid is offered through the students' home institution. Thus, students should seek such assistance through the financial aid offices of their own institution. University of Hawai'i students should apply for aid through the financial aid office in the Queen Lili'uokalani Center for Student Services. Apply early -- support is often available for summer programs.
