Grants for Teachers
At Hawaii State FCU, we recognize and appreciate everything our local public school teachers do for our kids and the community. That’s why we started the Investing in Education Grant to help teachers pay for supplies, books, furniture, electronics and other classroom needs.
Our 2017 Investing in Education Grant application period is now closed and recipients will be announced soon.
Applications for 2018 will open early September.

Garrett Hatakenaka teaches STEM classes for 10th to 12th graders. Garrett needed funds to purchase tools and equipment for the students to practice measuring and prototyping. He also needed power tools as well as associated safety equipment. These items enabled students to experience real-world applications of math and science with hands-on learning.
Noelani Elementary School
Denalee Choy is teaching her students coding, which is a set of instructions computer programmers write that computers can understand. She is using her grant to purchase three Dash robots that will allow her students to write code on the iPads.
Grant funds are available from September 1 through October 31. Submissions will be reviewed and awarded as they are received and continue until all programs funds have been disbursed or until October 31, whichever comes first.
Teachers will be required to submit essays of 500 words or less explaining what is the need in the classroom, how the grant money will assist in student learning and provide details on items to be purchased and their cost.
Unlike a bank that’s more concerned with profit, we’re a not-for-profit concerned with our member’s financial and personal well-being. We’re all about people helping people. We hope that it shows in everything we do.
Grants & Scholarships
Hawaii State FCU has already awarded more than half a million dollars in scholarships since 1996. Recipients each receive $2,000 to be used toward a university, college or trade/vocational school.
It’s important to recognize and appreciate everything our Hawaii teachers do for our kids. That’s why we created the Investing in Education Grant. The money can be used to buy classroom supplies, books, electronics and more.
We believe in volunteering for worthwhile causes in our local communities. Look for us out in the community year-round as we do our part to improve the lives of others.
