UROP is honored to present the Douglas S. Yamamura Scholarship to outstanding undergraduate students, enrolled in any field of study, who are engaged in research and creative work initiatives. The scholarship was established with a generous endowment from the estate of Paul T. Yamamura, in order to support scholarly research at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
Each semester, UROP considers all project funding applicants for the prestigious Douglas S. Yamamura Scholarship. The UROP staff selects the best STEM, and the best non-STEM student or student group to receive the scholarship. In an effort to support continued education of local students, strong preference is shown to undergraduate students who have graduated from high school in Hawai‘i.
