The Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science program at the University of Hawaii at Hilo has received $1 million, the third year of funds for its National Science Foundation Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology program. The project is a five-year, $5 million cooperative agreement.

The Good Beginnings Alliance has received $550,000 in grants for a campaign aimed at building support for improved early education opportunities in the islands. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation awarded the alliance $500,000, while the rest came from the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation. The money will go to GBA's "Be My Voice!" campaign, aimed at bringing light to issues affecting Hawaii's youngest kids and "building will" for an improved early childhood education network in the state. A growing body of evidence links high-quality early childhood learning with overall academic success.
