The Native Hawaiian Science & Engineering Mentorship Program (NHSEMP) offers its students unique opportunities, financial and academic support, and a shared sense of community. Its mission is to provide these services to Native Hawaiian, Native American, and Pacific Island students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. NHSEMP helps acquaint students with best-fit mentors, in addition to sponsoring field trips, workshops, and in some cases, offers financial assistance. Additionally, the program provides referrals to internship opportunities throughout the summer and the academic school year. Students in the program are expected to maintain a high level of commitment to their academic studies, which includes a minimum semester GPA. NHSEMP also encourages its members to participate in social events such as the ‘Ohana Program, which help establish a stronger sense of community among students. Comprehensive support involving outreach, recruitment, retention, and placement strategies aim to increase the number of qualified individuals on a successful path to leadership in community, industry, and academia.
