This fall, thirty six students were welcomed into the Ho’oulu STEM Scholarship Program, a partnership between Chaminade University and Kamehameha Schools. Students who are accepted into the program receive full tuition assistance, consideration for a housing stipend and wraparound academic support. Chaminade University recently received a prestigious $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to expand the program and offer an additional 15 scholarships next year. Dr. Helen Turner, Dean of Natural Sciences and Math and VP of Innovation announced that next year an additional major will be available to Ho’oulu Scholars, a Bachelor of Science in Data Science, Analytics and Visualization. This exciting new degree is the first of its kind in the state.
