Posted May 15, 2022, 2:00 PM HST ·Updated May 15, 10:14 AM

High school students have an opportunity to build their skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics while getting some help preparing for college through a program offered by the University of Hawaiʻi.

Project Hōkūlani, a University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa program, is recruiting high school students from throughout the islands. The free, STEM-skill building and college prep program guides students and their parents through the college application process and finding funds for college.

Participants engage in hands-on activities and a paid summer internship. Fall and spring sessions will be hosted at local college campuses, and summer internships will be with local STEM organizations.

Applications are due June 17. The program starts this fall. Spaces are limited, so don’t wait to apply.
