HHERF Scholarships

HAH has decided to not hold this year’s Awards & Scholarship Gala and the Hawaii Healthcare Heroes celebration on Oct. 24. Instead, we are devoting HAH staff time and resources to support Hawaii’s hospitals, post-acute care facilities, home health agencies and hospices as they fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will continue to invest in Hawaii’s healthcare workforce with the Hawaii Hospital Education and Research Foundation (HHERF) healthcare scholarships.  Employees of HAH member organizations and their immediate family members are eligible to apply for healthcare scholarships of $500 to $2,000 to cover professional certification and healthcare-related education from the community college up to doctoral degree levels.
