UH projects getting over $3.5M in fed grants

More than $3.5 million in grant awards will be given to the University of Hawaii for its Sea Grant College Program and for Asia-Pacific research and scholarships, Sen. Mazie Hirono announced Friday.

“Investments in the University of Hawaii’s research and programming are integral to giving students more opportunities, gaining valuable insights into the challenges facing our communities and fostering better engagement in the broader world,” Hirono said. “It is important that we maintain healthy coral reefs and water sources, and gain as much insight as possible into the effects of climate change. With the U.S. government’s ongoing re-balance to the Pacific, it is important that American students, diplomats and policy makers have a working understanding of Asia-Pacific countries and cultures. The awards announced today will help the University of Hawaii conduct research and provide programming to achieve these important goals.”
