UH Hilo, along with Hope Services Hawaii and the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii Island have been awarded Smart electric vehicles by the Hawaiian Electric Industries (HEI) Charitable Foundation and Hawai`i Electric Light Company.

Smart electric vehicles have been gaining in popularity in recent years due to their lower cost per mile than vehicles with a conventional gasoline-fueled engine, along with reduced carbon emissions and noise pollution levels.

UH Hilo was chosen as a recipient along with the UH Manoa, West Oahu and Maui College campuses due to the University’s role in promoting Hawaii's goal to achieve a 100 percent clean, energy future.

Plans call for the vehicle to be assigned to Administrative Affairs,to enable employees from the various divisions to use it for off-campus trips and meetings, while increasing the University’s visibility in the community, and advancing its goals of conservation and starting an Energy Science program.

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.
