By Staff | Nov 9, 2017

WAILEA – 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 scholarship (formerly the Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship) 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 submitted by Monday, Feb. 19, 2018.

Last year, Jerman awarded three Maui County high school graduates scholarships of $1,000 each. The recipients were Daniel Ornelas from Maui Preparatory Academy, Nickolas Lopes from King Kekaulike High School and Katelynn Oliveira from Hana High and Elementary School.

Ornelas is attending the University of Hawaii at Hilo, where he is studying communication. Lopes is pursuing a bachelor’s degree at UH Maui College. Oliveira is also attending UH Maui College, where she is fulfilling her dream of earning a culinary arts degree. This year, three more high school seniors will be eligible to receive the $1,000 scholarship awards.

Josh Jerman, an award-winning, top-producing real estate broker on Maui since 2004, and his wife, Souksamlane, are the founders of the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation Scholarship program. To learn more, or to apply for the scholarship, visit www.jermanfoundation.org.
