International Financial Aid Requirements


What is I-WORK?

International Work Opportunity Returnability Kuleana (responsibility)

The I-WORK program assists students from our target area (South Pacific and Far East) in obtaining a quality education at BYU-Hawaii. It is built on the principle of self-reliance and its goal is to provide the necessary financial assistance to worthy members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints so they can return home to their countries and regions debt-free and qualified to provide leadership roles in an international church, in civic and social affiliations, and within their families. 

Principles of I-WORK at BYU-Hawaii

I-WORK is typically reserved for students from our target area (South Pacific and Far East) attending BYU-Hawaii. It teaches self-reliance, responsibility, and accountability. The program is equally supportive for both single and married students; however, we strongly prefer married couples to both be able to attend BYU-Hawaii at the same time. It requires recipients and their families to work and contribute to the cost of their education at BYU-Hawaii and it encourages returnability.
