HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

USA Funds has awarded a $4.6 million grant to the University of Hawaii to help build Hawaii’s innovation economy workforce and stem the state’s “brain drain.”

The $4.6 million grant from USA funds will support the creation of a STEM Center of Excellence at UH. The center will serve as a resource to coordinate STEM-related activities across the state. Efforts will include an Innovation Workforce Program that provides rapid response training to meet immediate workforce needs.

The center will also build and strengthen STEM education pathways from K-12 into the community colleges and four-year universities.
