Catholic group gives $350,000 in tuition aid

I don't see nor read Ken Conklin nor Thurston Twigg-Smith mentioning the Augustine Educational Foundation latest award of $350,000 in tuition scholarships to 336 Hawaii Catholic school students. Oh that's right. They only discuss Hawaiians. Seriously... the Augustine Educational Foundation has presented more than $3.1 million in scholarships since 1986. Do Hawaiians grumble that only Catholics school students receive this aid? No. Anyway good news in the islands:


Catholic group gives $350,000 in tuition aid



The Augustine Educational Foundation has awarded $350,000 in tuition scholarships to 336 Hawaii Catholic school students.

The grants were paid to Catholic schools on the four major islands for 215 Oahu recipients, 48 on the Big Island, 27 on Kauai and 46 on Maui. Students in grades K-8 received $1,000, and in grades 9-12, $1,500.

The foundation has presented more than $3.1 million in scholarships since 1986. It was founded with the profits from the sale of St. Augustine School in Waikiki, and has been endowed by several contributors, including $2 million from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.

For information on the scholarships available to financially needy students, call 808-203-6736.
