The Go Wild Scholarship
Konawaena High School
Indigenous students are thriving, demonstrating total wellbeing through honoring their cultural identity, caring for their physical health, and pursuing excellence in their chosen field of learning.
We provide increased access for indigenous students who wish to further their education in any type of higher education (traditional, technical). Indigenous students will be celebrated for their efforts to learn about, share, and elevate their culture. We activate the network of international athletes and local community leaders to support the wellbeing of our communities .
As a first move toward living into this vision and mission, this year we are proud to inaugurate the Go Wild Scholarship established to recognize the first group of indigenous athletes in support of their future aspirations.
How you can help:
Students who historically cannot afford the cost after high school of programs or schooling will be able to better afford their tuition with this scholarship. You can join in removing a very real barrier in our community currently preventing the pursuit of education beyond high school. Through investing in The Go Wild Scholarship, you will be part of the movement that ensures no student’s dream for their future is impossible due to finances. The impact of your donation is threefold: Increasing access to higher education or career excellence, for the most underrepresented group in our nation - native and islander students; Elevating the stories, culture and practices of indigenous peoples; Celebrating the total-wellbeing of our communities, healthy in mind, body and spirit.
