Turtle Bay Foundation Scholarships & Grants

Mahalo for your interest in the Turtle Bay Foundation. 

We are disappointed to share that we are unable to accept scholarship and grant applications this year due to the impact of COVID-19 on our fundraising efforts and our resort. We’re working hard to find creative, meaningful ways to support our community. 

Please follow Turtle Bay Foundation on Facebook and Instagram, sign up for our newsletter or check back here for updates.

Turtle Bay Foundation Scholarships

Turtle Bay Foundation Scholarships are designed to award one-year educational scholarships to individuals who reside between Mokuleia and Kualoa or have a parent that has been employed at Turtle Bay Resort or Turtle Bay Golf for the last five years. The amount of the scholarships will be determined by the availability of funds. Determination of award winners will be made by the Turtle Bay Foundation Scholarship Committee in its sole discretion. Scholarship funds will be released once confirmation of registration into an educational program has been received by the Foundation.

Turtle Bay Foundation Continuing Education Scholarship

Provides continuing education opportunities for returning college students.

Turtle Bay Foundation Grants

Turtle Bay Foundation Grants fund programs that make a significant impact in our communities and directly improve the lives of our people. The primary purpose of the funding is to directly support program needs and minimize overhead and administration. The grant selection is a thoughtful process that draws upon the mana‘o of the community and calls for partners with comparable and complementary goals. Turtle Bay Foundation supports programs that strengthen our values, including those pertaining to:
  • Education and job training
  • Cultural and historic sites
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Health care
  • Sports and recreational teams and organizations
The Turtle Bay Foundation’s preference is to fund programs and events, as opposed to providing general revenues for applicants. Examples of funding purposes that are generally considered secondary to the Turtle Bay Foundation grants guidelines include:
  • Endowment campaigns
  • Salaries for staff and professionals
  • General overhead and operating costs such as rent, travel expenses, equipment maintenance, and administrative expenses
The Turtle Bay Foundation will provide a limited number of grants, ranging in value from $500 to $2,000. The Foundation will acknowledge receipt of your grant application within 30 days of the deadline. If you do not hear from us within 30 days of the deadline, please e-mail info@turtlebayfoundation.com. The grant awards notifications will occur no later than 60 days following the application deadline and will be communicated through written correspondence.
