Kūlia ma Kapi‘olani

Program Closed

Mahalo for your interest in Kūlia ma Kapʻiolani – the Native Hawaiian CTE Project. The program is permanently closed as of November 1, 2018, due to a loss of federal funding.

If you are a Native Hawaiian CTE student in need of assistance, please check with your respective academic counselor as well as the Kapo’oloku Program for Native Hawaiian Student Success at kapnhss@hawaii.edu


Kūlia ma Kapi‘olani is a Native Hawaiian Career & Technical Education project sponsored by ALU LIKE, INC. and funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.


Our goal is to assist Native Hawaiian students who are pursuing degrees in CTE programs to both graduate and find employment in their chosen fields.
