The George A. Kanna Scholarship Foundation announces the availability of a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving Kauai High School graduate pursuing higher education at an accredited institution.

The George A. Kanna Scholarship Foundation was chartered as a non-profit charitable corporation in 2003.  Its primary objective is to provide aid to deserving students in furthering their education. 

The foundation was founded to commemorate the work and dedication of George A. Kanna, DDS.  Dr. George Kanna, a pioneer in the dental profession in Hawaii, was one of the founders of Hawaii Dental Service, which made access to quality dental care to all of Hawaii’s people a reality.  His commitment to the community was evidenced through his involvement in numerous organizations and boards, including the State Board of Education, the State Board of Dental Examiners, West Kauai Jaycees, West Kauai Lions and many others.  Education, however, was always at the heart of his philosophy, as he believed that it is the “key to opening doors”, and an achievement that no one can take from you.  It is with these firm beliefs and dedication to the young people of our community that these scholarships are presented.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The student must be a graduate of Waimea High School, Class of 2013 and have a minimum of 3.0 GPA.
  • The applicant must be a resident of the island of Kauai for minimal of 2 years.
  • The grant may be used at any accredited institution of higher learning.
  • The applicant must be accepted by the institution and be planning a course of study leading to a degree as a full-time registered student.
  • The applicant will be selected on the basis of financial need (40%), scholarship and academic achievement (30%), moral character and community service (20%) and letters of recommendation (10%).
  • The Committee may interview applicants.
  • Deadline for applications is April 5, 2013.
  • The decision of the Scholarship Committee of the Foundation will be final.
  • Relatives of board members of the GAK Scholarship Foundation are not eligible.

Please submit your application, transcripts and letters of recommendation to:
Dr. Lauren Kanna-Bundschuh
P.O.  Box 633
Lawai, Hawaii  96765
