RAM offers its Presidential Scholarship

The Realtors Association of Maui is accepting applications for its Presidential Scholarship. To be eligible, students must be a high school senior or a former recipient of the scholarship (from the previous three years) and they must be in the process of applying or reapplying to an accredited college or university or trade school.

Applicants must also be full-time Maui County residents who are currently attending or have previously attended a public or private high school in Maui County; however, students attending private high schools off island will be considered residents of Maui County if they are living off island for the specific purpose of attending that private high school.

Current GED participants are also encouraged to apply for the scholarship award.

“Our members are very proud to support our community by fundraising to further the education of Maui’s youth,” said 2018-19 RAM President Gina Duncan. “Reviewing the applications and seeing the drive and dedication of these young adults is always humbling. We love to hear their success stories as they move forward in life and in their careers.”

Applicants are evaluated based on a number of criteria, including financial need, scholastic achievement, career goals, school activities and community activities.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 28 and all mailed applications must be postmarked no later than Feb. 26.
