Mahalo for being a reference! The student that you are providing a reference for is applying for Project Hōkūlani.
Project Hōkūlani is a research project run by faculty and researchers at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with a U.S. Department of Education, Native Hawaiian Education Program (Award # S362A200035, #S362A210073).
The goal is to increase the number of Native Hawaiian high school students, including students with disabilities, who intend to enter into postsecondary science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields by developing and providing a work-based, strength-based, and culturally responsive program. The Hōkūlani program is a year-long program in SY 2023-2024. Students will first participate in a kick-off meeting, followed by 20 sessions of hands-on STEM activities, mentoring, college transition support, and internship project development, and then complete a paid summer STEM internship under the guidance of a mentor at the worksite that students selected when applying.
