Palama Settlement offers four education scholarships to assist youth with achieving their educational goals. Thanks to generous annual gifts given by Mrs. Cecilia Blackfield, her family, friends, and ABC Stores, the Backfield & Friends Scholarship Program has provided more than $192,000 in scholarship assistance since 1999, helping more than 200 youth further their education. In addition, Hannah Cochrane, a dear friend of Ms. Blackfield’s, also established a need-based scholarship fund to support post secondary education in the state of Hawaii.

Palama also offers the Dr. Daniel H. Katayama and Ms. Jane H. Sato Scholarship, as well as the Rebecca Kwai Hin Kamp Memorial Pakolea Education Scholarship.
