Attention students: If you have a passion and interest in learning about and managing ecologically and culturally significant ahupuaʻa in Hawaiʻi, Travis Idol in the Dept. of Natural Resources and Environmental Management has an opportunity for you.
NREM is offering a Research and Extension Experience for Undergraduates in Biocultural Restoration and Management on Oʻahu. The year-long fellowship opportunities are for UH undergraduates. Fellows will work with a team of UH faculty, resource professionals, stewardship organizations, and community members to do hands-on work in the field, carry out priority research projects, and give back to the community and the ʻaina. The fellowship comes with a $5,000 stipend from REEU, $1,000 in project supplies and $500 in travel expenses.
“Student, come learn, engage, and contribute to the sustainability of Hawaiʻi’s environment, the health of local communities, and the enrichment of Hawaiian culture,” says Travis. “You will conduct research with UH faculty, get real-world experience in sustainable agricultural production and natural resource conservation, and network with professionals and community members dedicated to restoring what makes Hawaiʻi special.”
