For Immediate Release

A University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo student was recently awarded a $10,000 scholarship from the Fund for Education Abroad to study in Sweden and in Japan for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Amy Odaira is one of 98 scholarship recipients of the nearly 2,300 applicants this year. A biology major with a minor in computer science, she will spend Fall 2018 studying at Uppsala University, Sweden, and Spring 2019 studying at Doshisha University, Japan. She will share her experiences on a blog hosted by FEA: http://fundforeducationabroad.org/author/amy-odaira/ .

The mission of the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is to provide scholarships and ongoing support to students who are underrepresented among the U.S. study abroad population, making life-changing, international experiences accessible to all by supporting minority and first-generation college students before, during, and after they participate in education abroad programs. FEA aims to make the demographics of U.S. undergraduates studying abroad reflect the rich diversity of the U.S. population.
