Tomodachi Inouye Scholars

In 2016, twenty-one students and two faculty members from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo were chosen to participate in the Tomodachi Inouye Scholars Program, administered by the U.S.-Japan Council, which honors the legacy of the late Senator Daniel Inouye.

During their time abroad, the students created a blog to document and share their experience.
