USCG, UH Mānoa agree to boost student opportunities


HONOLULU—The U.S. Coast Guard has signed a memorandum of agreement with the University of Hawaii at Mānoa as part of the Coast Guard’s Minority-Serving Institutions Partnership Program for increased student opportunities.

The partnership agreement is designed to optimize outreach and engagement efforts and have program participants work in conjunction with the Coast Guard’s overall civilian and military officer recruitment efforts.

Central to this partnership is the Coast Guard’s College Student Pre-Commissioning Initiative scholarship program that is available to students enrolled at minority serving institutions such as UH. There are currently four CSPI students enrolled at UH Mānoa and two at UH Hilo.

UH Mānoa is one of 132 Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions nationwide participating in the CSPI program. There are currently 11 students enrolled in the CSPI program between Hawaii and Guam, with more than half in the UH 10 campus system. (PR)
