C-MORE Scholars Projects
C-MORE Scholars Program
The C-MORE Scholars program provides hands-on, closely mentored research experiences for full-time undergraduate students within the University of Hawai‘i (UH) system who are interested in ocean and earth science-related careers. Students, especially underrepresented students such as Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, from all UH campuses are encouraged to apply. Three levels of awards are offered, depending on the student’s skills, knowledge and experience. All Scholars receive guidance and help from a mentor who is an ocean or earth scientist. Mentors can be chosen by the student, or we can help find a mentor based on the student’s interests. In addition to conducting research, all Scholars attend monthly meetings on professional development, participate in educational outreach and present their research results at the end of the year.
