Applications for the IKE 2019 Hawaiʻi Calculus Academy now OPEN!!

The IKE (Indigenous Knowledge in Engineering)/Pre-Engineering Education Collaborative II (PEEC II) Program is looking for Native Hawaiian students and other underrepresented minorities in STEM who are interested in engineering and who are ready to take Calculus I, II, or III for our Hawaiʻi Calculus Academy program (May 20-June 28). Students who have been part of the program have gone to NASA, flown rockets 3500ft into the air, reduced water usage on our campus, gotten paid to do research, and presented their research across the U.S!

Benefits:

  • FREE tuition for calculus and SCI 295 (4 credits total)
  • Get one-on-one help from peer mentors
  • Work on renewable engineering projects that will affect our community
  • Get to know faculty (great for recommendation letters)
  • Meet a cohort of other engineering students who you’ll take the rest of your engineering courses with
  • Share your knowledge with the engineering community at our symposium
  • Get support for scholarships, internships, research opportunities, and conferences

Only 10 students will be selected. Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, American Indians, Alaskan Natives, women, and other STEM minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. Please see this brochure and the attached flyer for more info.

Deadline: Friday, March 1
