PAAC clubs represent the traditional form of PAAC’s outreach into high schools. Many clubs are student-initiated and driven. The overall goal is to increase club members’ awareness of international affairs. Clubs participate in PAAC-sponsored events such as inter-school conferences and competitions, and tailor the program to meet the needs of each school. If you are interested in having a PAAC club at your high school, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808) 944-7759.
Paul S. Honda Scholarships
The late Paul S. Honda, a distinguished member of PAAC’s Senior Advisory Council, established an endowment for this scholarship fund to promote Asian Studies and International Studies in higher education. Every academic year, four $1,000 scholarships are given in his name to graduating seniors who have demonstrated leadership in international affairs and plan to pursue degrees in Asian Studies, International Affairs or a related field.
