For Immediate Release

A student on exchange at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo was recently awarded a National Student Exchange Student Achievement Award.

Joshuah Cohen, a political science student at Stony Brook University in New York, received the Dr. Richard R. Bond Community Engagement Award for demonstrating best use of his study away exchange participation. Cohen was on an exchange at UH Hilo in spring 2020.

During his time at UH Hilo Cohen was hired by the NSE coordinator to help promote the program to interested students.

“Many students were encouraged to go on exchange and expand their horizons after one of Joshuah’s many classroom experiences,” commented UH Hilo NSE Coordinator Holly Garriques. “Joshuah felt a responsibility to spread the word about NSE and give back to a program that helped him develop into the person he is today.”

Cohen was awarded a $500.00 stipend.
