National Database vs. University of Hawaii Database

National Database

UROP’s subscription to the SOC grants access to staff, students, and faculty on the Mānoa campus only. Users can search the national database for opportunities, save favorites, and even keep track of which opportunities they have applied to. See instructions below.

University of Hawaii Database

UROP’s subscription to the SOC also allows us to create and curate an internal UHM database. This database will house faculty-generated listings available only to UHM undergraduate students. 

Faculty may advertise their own, on-campus opportunities on the current, in-progress version. See the instructions below.

***Notice: All UHM faculty, staff, and undergraduate students received an automated email from the Student Opportunity Center (SOC) on Friday 9/27 or Wednesday 10/2 with the subject line “Student Opportunity Center Account Activation.” The email stated that Jessie Chen created an account on the recipient’s behalf, and prompted individuals to click an “Activate Account” button in the body of the message. These emails are legitimate, and users can follow the email instructions to complete account setup. If you cannot find or have deleted the email, follow steps 1-4 below to initiate the “Resend activation email” prompt. ***
