The Barney S. Fujimoto Memorial Scholarship was established in 1973 to recognize achievement and promote excellence by awarding $1,000 scholarships to selected Big Island high school seniors who plan to attend an institution with the University of Hawaii system. The scholarships are in memory of Barney S. Fujimoto a past officer of HPM Building Supply who held very strong convictions about the merits of higher education.

Applicants must be able to show a history of strong community service. Preference will be given to applicants with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and children of HPM Building Supply owner-employees.
