I learned today that I am approved for the Project REACH educational grant. The grant consists of a five-thousand dollar credit toward my school tuition, plus a waiver of resource fees amounting to an additional thousand dollars or so.

The requirement for this grant is to agree to work in an "at need" school for at least three years. The real challenge in this state is finding a school that is not considered "at need." I'll just have to try to remember, a year and a half from now, that if I find myself working at Sunset Beach Elementary, an ocean view campus directly across the street from the Banzai Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu, it's because I have to in order to fulfil the obligations of this federal educational grant.

This grant is not merit-based, obviously; pretty much anybody who applies, and whose fingerprint file doesn't get them sent to Sing Sing -- curious the number of people in Hawaii that little technicality weeds out -- is approved.

The Project REACH program is available in Nevada, Arizona, American Samoa, and Hawaii.

Of course, I still need to pass the certification program.
