Of the 18 students in the original 19th century Hawaiian Youths Abroad program, 5 studied in Italy, more than any other country. Following in their footsteps, the 2nd annual Hawaiian Youths Abroad program slated for July 2019 will travel to London, England first and then to several cities in Italy.

We will be recruiting currently enrolled University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students across different disciplines and finalizing our cohort by late Spring 2019. The program will include at least three weeks of study and research in Honolulu before departing for Europe for an additional two weeks. The program will involve two 3-credit courses (6 credits total) and a 2 week Faculty Sponsored Study Tour.

Program Eligibility

  • Full-time enrollment at UH Mānoa in Spring 2019 and Fall 2019, either as a classified undergraduate or graduate student in good standing, with at least a 2.5 cumulative G.P.A.
  • Demonstrated interest, commitment and promise in Hawaiian research and community issues
  • Priority to students who have participated in previous NHSS programming, as this is considered an NHSS capstone experience
