The Hawaii Tourism Hooilina Scholarship is available for up to a total of ten scholarships at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM), Shidler College of Business, School of Travel Industry Management (TIM). The scholarship will be awarded to eight Hawaii public school graduates who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership skills and an expressed interest in pursuing a hospitality, tourism or culinary education and career, and up to two Hawaii community college graduates with an associate degree in hospitality, tourism or culinary studies. 
The four-year scholarship (worth $48,000) for Hawaii public school graduates and two-year scholarship (worth $24,000) for community college graduates is made possible through tourism dollars from the Transient Accommodations Tax and in collaboration between the Hawaii Tourism Authority, Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association, and University of Hawaii at Manoa.

HTA recognizes the use of the 'okina ['] or glottal stop, one of the eight consonants of the (modern) Hawaiian language; and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawai'i such as Lāna'i). However, HTA respects the individual use of these markings for names of organizations and businesses. Due to technological limitations, this current communication
may not include all Hawaiian diacritical markings.
