The University of Hawaii at Hilo and the Institute for Shipboard Education are marking this year’s 50th anniversary of the Semester at Sea program by extending their scholarship agreement.
A renewal agreement was signed Jan. 17. UH-Hilo and ISE plan to award a total of 10 scholarships each year.
Among the students receiving a scholarship for the current voyage is Kyle Davis, a student in the UH-Hilo College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management. Davis will visit 16 cities and 12 countries during his voyage. Twenty-one UH-Hilo students have benefited from the program since 2009.
