The Hawaii Chapter of Financial Executives International (FEI) has established a $35,000 endowed scholarship at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Shidler College of Business. This endowment will fund scholarships to undergraduate students majoring in accounting and/or finance at the College.
“The Hawaii Chapter of Financial Executives International is a proud supporter of education,” says Randall Kawano, FEI Treasurer (BBA ‘81). “For many years, we have supported the Shidler College of Business through annual scholarship donations, as well as Business Night awards. The establishment of an endowment fund allows us to support accounting and finance students in perpetuity. I’m happy to say that we’ve had overwhelming support from our membership.”
For over 20 years, the FEI Hawaii Chapter has been bringing senior-level financial executives together to exchange ideas, engage in professional development and work to improve Hawai‘i’s economy. The mission of the FEI Hawaii Chapter is to advance the success of senior-level financial executives, their organizations and the profession. Through its academic program, FEI Hawaii has provided mentors, scholarships and built a partnership with the academic community.
“We are grateful to the members and officers of the FEI Hawaii Chapter for their continuous support,” says Vance Roley, dean of the Shidler College of Business. “The FEI Hawaii Chapter has provided more than $20,000 in annual scholarships since 1996, and has consistently sponsored the Dean’s Professional Development award at the College’s annual Business Night event for the past 20 years.”
