The LIS Program is able to provide two types of Achievement Awards. These used to be known as “Tuition Waivers” and “Pacific Asian Scholarships.” The requirements and application forms are at our website: http://www.hawaii.edu/lis/students.php?page=scholarshipsThe LIS Office must receive completed applications by April 15th for the Fall. There are no awards for the summer semester. We would also appreciate it if you would add your UHM student ID # and e-mail address on the attached 1-page rationale.
The Graduate Division has approved a dual master’s degree arrangement between the Library and Information Science (LIS) Program in the College of Natural Sciences and the Department of Educational Technology (ETEC) in the College of Education. Master’s candidates in both programs have expressed increasing interest in courses that allow them cross-disciplinary opportunities in information technology and library and information science. Faculties of both programs discussed the potential value of the arrangement and voted unanimously to pursue the initiative. The dual degree arrangement would allow students to double count a maximum of 9 credits. For more details, interested students should contact Dr. Catherine Fulford, ETEC Department, or Dr. Violet Harada, LIS Program.
