The Kahu Leilani M. Keanu Scholarship
for Theological Education
The goal of the scholarship fund is to develop and support clergy and laity for Christian ministry through offering grants for leadership development of clergy and laity.
The Kahu Leilani M. Keanu Scholarship for Theological Education was established in May 1999 at the time of Kahu Leilani’s ordination and installation as minister to Kalihi and Moanalua Church. Kahu Leilani used the offerings received to establish the scholarship out of concern for the future of the Hawaiian churches due to the lack of clergy to fill the pulpits. She established the Association of Hawaiian Evangelical Churches Scholarship Fund to provide financial assistance to those called to ministry in the Hawaiian churches. The scholarship fund was renamed in November 2012 to honor her commitment to Christian ministry in the Hawaiian churches.
The committee will review applications as received. Please submit applications one month prior to course or workshop registration deadline.
