In support of student research focused on marine science, the Hawaiʻi Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa hosted its annual Student Scholarship Symposium on May 16. The event showcased the work of 15 undergraduate and graduate haumāna (students) for an audience of more than 100 HIMB faculty, researchers, fellow students and donors who have supported the students’ research.

“With this event, we are excited to share the diversity of current research projects at HIMB, showcase our students, and show our appreciation to our scholarship donors,” said Kuʻulei Rodgers, a researcher at HIMB and a member of the HIMB Scholarship Committee.

Haumāna representing 13 different labs at HIMB presented applied and solution-based research on a broad range of marine research topics encompassing coral reefs, sharks, whales, monk seals and fishes. Projects were focused near and far—with some students working locally in Kāneʻohe Bay or a Windward Oʻahu loko ʻia (fishpond) and another assessing Guam’s green sea turtles.
