The Women’s STARS Program received an additional funding boost last month with the announcement of a $1,154 grant award from the Women’s Fund of Hawaii. The funding will pay for ground transportation costs, student supplies and inspirational reading material during the workshop, scheduled July 9 to 13.
Earlier this year, the Hawaii Technology Development Corp. awarded the STARS Program a $4,000 grant to support meal and accommodation costs. The upcoming STEM program will mentor 12 high school girls from across the state. Thanks to additional funding support, the 2018 program will provide overnight accommodations at no cost to students, as well as an inspiring lineup of female engineers, educators and astronomers.
A big Mahalo! to Women’s Fund of Hawaii for helping us provide this exciting opportunity for young women in Hawaii!
