This year, two Hawaii Community College students were chosen to receive Freeman Foundation Scholarships.
Amy Hinton and Ty Widhalm spent the summer at Kapiolani Community College taking intensive courses in Chinese language and culture. Both are now studying in Shanghai, China for the Fall 2012 semester.
The Freeman Foundation Community College Program exists to promote international understanding through support for intensive second language training and international travel with study abroad opportunities to China, Japan, or Korea. The Freeman Foundation provides financial support for full-time University of Hawai’i Community College students with the intent to incorporate intensive language training and international educational into the academic programs of each participant.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013 Korea Scholarships. The Korea program will start in January at Kapiolani CC, followed by summer courses in Korea. Deadline for applications is Oct 16, 2012.
The Japan program will begin with a summer intensive at Kapiolani, followed by a semester of study in Japan in Fall 2013. Application deadlines for the Japan program will be announced later.
