The Office of Hawaiian Affairs has awarded a services grant of $1,243,336 to the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Na Pua No‘eau, the education-based resource center for Hawaiian children in grades K-12.

The grant will allow Na Pua No‘eau to provide a continuum of program and events to help students with an effective transition from high school to college.

“This is Na Pua No‘eau’s 20th year of operation,” said Na Pua No‘eau Director Dr. David Sing. “We cherish our partnership with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and are grateful for OHA’s long-term commitment to provide its beneficiaries opportunities to reach their highest potential and to promote the teaching of Hawaiian culture, language and history.

“That partnership allows Hawaiian students from throughout the State opportunities to raise their achievement and aspirations, and to strengthen their knowledge and practice of their Hawaiian cultural heritage,” Sing added.
