The Paubox Kahikina Scholarship helps Native Hawaiian students pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and Tech in general. Its purpose is to offer financial support and create a strong network for these students. The scholarship makes education more affordable and connects students with professionals, giving them valuable opportunities to learn and grow in their chosen STEM or Tech fields. This scholarship is about more than just money; it's about building a community and empowering Native Hawaiian students to succeed in STEM or Tech careers.

As a 2019 scholarship recipient, Nick recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in computer science, data science, and entrepreneurship. Here is an update from Nick Wong: 

How's it going everyone, my name is Nick Wong and I was one of the first recipients of the Paubox Kahikina Scholarship. I'm out here in Berkeley California, near the UC Berkeley campus. I just wanted to give a shout out to the Paubox scholarship, definitely apply.

Mahalo to the organization for investing so much in the next generation of Hawaii's technology leaders. I'm really excited to continue to support this program, it really gets a lot of opportunity, and allows us to get our foot in the door when breaking into the tech industry.

Go Paubox Kahikina scholarship. Aloha!”
