High School Students
Join the Summer Scholar Program!

Over the past 20 years, hundreds of high school participants in our Summer Scholar Program have discovered that summer is the ideal time to

  • see what college will be like by taking a class with college students on a college campus
  • sample an academic area that interests you
  • strengthen your basic writing, math, or speech skills in preparation for your college career
  • begin to fulfill UH Mānoa core requirements (if you matriculate to another college or university, these credits may transfer)
  • meet students from other high schools (local and mainland)
  • explore the UH Mānoa campus and its many resources with the assistance of our Summer Scholar Coordinator

The college environment promotes personal growth. Take this time to discover new interests, develop strategies for dealing with the intense and unique demands of a college career, and explore the unlimited potential that you possess!
