Big Island Bash Scholarships

We offer a limited number of scholarships for people who want to attend to the Bash but cannot afford the registration costs. Scholarships are intended for members with a sincere need. Scholarships are awarded based on eligibility, committee review and the order received.

Individuals receiving a scholarship will be able to attend all workshops, meetings, and the Saturday night luau dinner. Priority will be given to applicants with less than 1) two years of sobriety, 2) who are residents of the Big Island (and secondly to residents of the State of Hawaii). Remaining scholarships may be given to non-Hawaii residents. People cannot receive a scholarship more than once.


Eligibility requirements:

  • Must have a sponsor.

  • Must be working a 12 step program with a sponsor.

  • Must be able to attend the meetings/workshops during the Big Island Bash
