Educational Assistance Programs

One of the greatest gifts an employer can give to its employees is the gift of education.

Bank of Hawaii believes in providing our employees with opportunities and options to enhance their development, both professionally and personally.


Bank of Hawaii has a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and a College Assistance Program (CAP) - two uniquely designed programs specifically for bank employees who have a desire to obtain and/or continue their quest for a degree.

There are many reasons why someone may not earn a bachelor’s degree. Whether it’s time, money or family obligations, it may not always be feasible to return to school, especially considering its rising costs. Search jobs to see what job opportunities are currently available.


“Our hope is to provide Hawaii with well-prepared individuals who aspire to better themselves and our state,” says Peter Ho, Bank of Hawaii chairman, president and CEO.

How the College Assistance Program Works

In partnership with Chaminade University, the Bank of Hawaii College Assistance Program is aimed at helping our employees get back on the path to obtaining their first four-year undergraduate degree with tuition reimbursement.

Through this program, enrolled employees:

Will receive 100% upfront tuition assistance prior to the start of each school term (completion of courses and other obligations required).

Have the flexibility to choose from select areas of study, regardless of whether or not they relate to employees’ jobs at the bank. Current online undergraduate majors at Chaminade include: Business Administration, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Historical & Political Studies, Psychology.

Have the opportunity to advance their learning at their convenience, with no obligation to stay with Bank of Hawaii.
