HAWAII ROTARY YOUTH FOUNDATION (HRYF)  The Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation (HRYF), was founded by Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan during his year as the Rotary’s District Governor in Hawaii, 1976-1977. It was Sully’s desire to assist Hawaii’s high school graduates to realize their potential by attending a college or university of their choice here in Hawaii or on the mainland. Scholarship awards are $5,000 for graduating Hawaii high school seniors.
The first HRYF scholarship was granted in 1977 and since then through April 2021, HRYF has awarded 1,889 scholarships with a total value of $7,345,888. In memory of “Sully”, who passed away on February 28, 1998, HRYF established a Maurice J. Sullivan Scholar Award. Each year, one outstanding student will receive this scholarship grant in the amount of $10,000. In 2008, HRYF also established the Joanna Lau Sullivan Scholar Award. This $10,000 award is given to an outstanding student attending a 4-year college or university in Hawaii.
The Rotary Club of West Honolulu has awarded 47 HRYF scholarships totaling $177,166 since 1977 and total donations from our club was $42,966. Please make a donation.
