Scholarship encourages students to return home
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 18th consecutive year, the scholarship program provides scholarships to students who will attend an accredited four-year college or university. To date, the program has awarded more than $50,000 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 2021-22 academic year. Applicants must also demonstrate financial need and plan to return and work in Maui County after graduation.
Three high school seniors will be eligible to receive the $1,000 scholarship awards in 2021. Applications are now available at jermanfoundation.org.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 22.
