The Royal Merit Scholarship (RMS) program recognizes Hanalani students who demonstrate commitment and diligence in the pursuit of high-level accomplishment and excellence. Royal Merit Scholarships are awarded to students involved in co-curricular activities, and we believe that these activities provide valuable learning venues for developing 21st century and leadership skills. Students may reapply each year for the RMS program.
