Student working in the lab

Scholarships level the playing field for those whose families cannot afford higher education. 

As COA’s reputation grows, we find ourselves competing for students with elite universities that can offer more substantial financial aid packages. Endowed scholarships will make all the difference as we compete for these exceptional scholars.

Our ultimate measure of success is found in our students—they will shape the future of this island and of ecological leadership internationally. COA scholarships will support the best and brightest students with the highest potential to flourish in COA’s distinctive academic environment.

Update: Thanks to the Broad Reach campaign, COA has established 23 new student scholarships, 17 of which are endowed funds. Thank you to all who have contributed to this important campaign priority.
