The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) supports a number of educational initiatives to help prepare Hawaii Island students for science and technology careers. Through the THINK Fund (The Hawaii Island New Knowledge), TMT has made a commitment to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education on Hawaii Island. It hopes education will strengthen the island’s workforce and economy so that families and communities thrive.
TMT created the THINK Fund after listening to the Hawaii Island community and hearing their concerns about future jobs on the island. Two prominent and well-respected Hawaii foundations, the Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) and Pauahi Foundation, were selected by TMT to administer the THINK Fund monies in scholarship and grant making platforms.
