The Panthera Edge-Kona Scholarship

Background:

Studies continually demonstrate that those who receive a bachelor's degree out-perform and out-earn and live longer than those without a bachelor degree. All these factors lead to productive lives with healthier living, opportunities to better educate their children, and opportunities to give back and assist their communities.

Often there are struggles that make it difficult for some students to attend a 4 year university. Finances are often a significant hurdle to overcome.

The Panthera Edge Foundation understands the importance of hard work and making good choices to prepare for acceptance to a Bachelor Degree Program, in an employable field of endeavor.

Background continued:

 

Panthera Edge is pleased to assist a deserving Kona high school senior from Honoka'a, Kealakehe, Konaweana, and WHEA  in that pursuit of higher education, by offering a $3000 scholarship to a 4 year university, either in Hawaii or on the mainland.

Throughout the year the Executive Director connects via email correspondence and together all three directors meet with the students once a year, building the relationship, and award the student an additional grant for year 2, year 3, year 4 of up to $1,500.  This additional award is given at the sole discretion of the directors.
