ʻUluʻulu Moving Image Archive at the University of Hawaiʻi – West Oʻahu, through the generous support of the Henry Ku‘ualoha & Muriel Roselani Giugni Fund of the Hawai‘i Community Foundation is pleased to welcome applications for the Roselani Media Preservation Internship. ʻUluʻulu is Hawaiʻi’s official state archive for moving images dedicated to the care, preservation, and digitization of film and videotape related to the history and culture of Hawaiʻi. The purpose of the Roselani Internship is to give a student of merit who is committed to the preservation of our media history – which covers the political, cultural and historical landscape of these islands – the opportunity to acquire practical experience in a moving image archive.
