WAILEA - For the eighth consecutive year, real estate broker Josh Jerman of The Wailea Group LLC is offering the Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship to encourage college-bound students to use their education to benefit Maui County.

To apply, students must be a resident of Maui County, be enrolled in a full-time program at an accredited four-year college or university (for the 2012-13 academic year) and demonstrate financial need.
