Ileana Argyris, a first year student in the College of Engineering at the University of Hawaii, won the 2012 UH Kukui Cup College of Natural Sciences (CNS) Energy Scholarship. The CNS Energy Scholarship, worth one semester of in-state tuition at the University of Hawaii, was established by the College to further STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) at the University.
The scholarship was limited to participants in the 2012 Kukui Cup challenge at the University of Hawaii. There were seven finalists chosen for the scholarship: four were automatically selected by winning a round in the 2012 Kukui Cup. The remaining three “at large” finalists were chosen by Kukui Cup organizers based upon their performance in the game and other interests in sustainability and STEM subjects. The seven finalists were forwarded to the Dean William Ditto of the College of Natural Sciences, who made the final selection.
We congratulate Ileana on her success and wish her best of luck in her future studies.
