Who Can Apply:
- Kirstie was kind, generous and overcame obstacles throughout her life with perseverance and humor.
- Due to family conflicts, Kirstie was unable to obtain funding for the colleges she was accepted to – such as Johns Hopkins, UCLA, UC Irvine, or George Fox – and instead attended a local state school.

In memory of Kirstie, the Persephone Scholarship will support high school seniors in Hawaii so they can follow their dreams, no matter where they may lead.
