The Department of Anthropology in partnership with the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy has received a 5-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a new project called SHARP which stands for Students of Hawai`i Advanced Research Program.

SHARP is part of the Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) initiative at the National Institutes of Health aimed at increasing the number of underrepresented students particularly Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders interested in pursuing a PhD in bio-medical or bio-behavioral research.

Qualified students accepted into the SHARP program receive paid research internships and mentorship by experienced faculty researchers across the STEM disciplines.

For more information, visit www.uhhilo-sharp.org. or call Dr. Lynn Morrison at (808) 932-7263. For more news about the University, visit www.hilo.hawaii.edu. That’s the UH Hilo Report. I’m Ken Hupp.

Applications are now being accepted for the Linguistics Program. Linguistics is housed within the Ka Haka ʻUla o Keʻelikōlani College of Hawaiian Language and provides valuable support to the growing movement to revitalize the Hawaiian language and culture.

The Program also seeks to prepare students for careers in teaching,publishing, translation and interpretation, and tourism. Classes are typically small in size, which fosters teacher-student interaction and helps develop lifelong bonding among classmates. Students in Linguistics regularly take advantage of study abroad opportunities at universities in countries such as Japan, Korea, Norway, New Zealand, and Peru, and they often pursue employment in international settings.

For more information about the Linguistics curriculum, visit the website at https://hilo.hawaii.edu/catalog/ba_ling
