Scholarship encourages students to use education to benefit Maui County

Josh Jerman of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers is once again offering the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation Scholarship to encourage college-bound students to use their education to benefit Maui County.

Now in its 15th consecutive year, the program provides scholarships to college-bound students who will attend an accredited four-year college or university.

To date, the program has awarded more than $43,000 in scholarships to Maui, Molokai and Lanai high school seniors who have displayed a passion for returning to Maui County after college to contribute to the community.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be Maui County residents already enrolled or enrolling in a full-time program at any four-year accredited college or university for the 2018-19 academic year.

Applicants must also demonstrate financial need and plan to return and work in Maui County after graduation. All scholarship applications must be postmarked by Feb. 19.
