Filipino Organization in Maui to Award 25 Scholarships

Maui’s Binhi at Ani awarded scholarships to 25 high school graduates from the Class of 2023 this past June. A $2,000 scholarship was given to the four top-rated students while the remaining 21 students will receive $1,000.

Binhi at Ani president Melen Agcolicol said she is grateful for those who donated to the scholarship.

“Thanks to the success of our annual Scholarship Golf Tournament and the generosity of our scholarship partners, we are able to award scholarships to 25 outstanding students,” she said.

Based on academic achievement, honors, activities, application essays and letters of recommendations, the scholars were evaluated and graded by an independent panel of judges.

“All the students had outstanding academic records,” said Michelle Balala Siores, chairperson of the Scholarship Committee.  “They were active in their school activities and volunteered hundreds of hours of their time to support our community organizations.

”The scholarship recipients are proud graduates of the Maui high schools and will be attending universities such as the University of Hawaii at Manoa, the University of California, Brown University, the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, San Diego State University, the University of San Francisco and more.

The scholars will be formally introduced at the July 15 event The Seed and Harvest Dinner at the Binhi at Ani Filipino Community Center in Kahului.

Binhi at Ani, “seed and harvest” in English, is a Filipino community organization based in Kahului, Maui.
