Mānoa Academy Scholars

The Mānoa Academy Scholars program provides certification and professional development opportunities to selective high school faculty to teach CSS courses for dual high school and UHM credit.

Mānoa Academy Scholars are a highly selective cohort of teachers that engage directly with UH Mānoa faculty around teaching and curriculum advancement. Scholars will be certified to teach classes for UHM credit, either as instructor of record or in collaboration with UHM faculty.

Academy Scholars will receive a non-compensated appointment to the College of Social Sciences, conferring the prestige of participation in the Academy and courtesy services including UHM library privileges, the right to purchase a parking permit and recreational facility membership, staff Identification card, and invitation to special events. Participating Scholars will teach at least one course offered for UHM credit within a 2-year period and agree to participate in Academy activities and programs.

For more information on how to become a Mānoa Academy Scholar, please talk to your high school principal.
