These programs offer undergraduate student internships that focus on environmental issues; mainly research and project-based internships opportunities in conservation sciences, resource management, and environmental education & outreach with Hawaii-based host agencies.  PIPES is a collaborative effort made possible by support from the Hawaii IMUA EPSCoR effort and partnerships between university faculty, local, state, and federal government agencies, private businesses, and non-profit organizations.

Through a PIPES experience, students gain valuable mentored hands-on experiences in which they gain further insight into Hawaii's natural and cultural resources and the challenges Hawaii faces in conserving and protecting them.  We have been offering student internships since 1994 and are looking forward to another successful summer!

We thank you very much for your assistance in encouraging students to take advantage of our programs, please let us know if you have any questions or would like more information.
