A family business since 1909, Deja Vu Surf Hawaii created the Deja Vu Surf Hawaii Scholarship Fund at Hawaii Community Foundation to support the success of Kauai students. The scholarship criteria gives preference to students who have been in foster care, followed by students who are the first generation in their family to attend college.
To qualify, applicants must attend an accredited two- or four-year, nonprofit institution within the United States as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student, be a resident of Kauai, and maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA.
To apply, students must complete the online application at: https://www.hawaiicommunityfoundation.org/students.
The online application period for the 2024-2025 academic year will open in December 2023.
