German Foundation press release
Josh Jerman of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers is once again offering the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation Scholarship to encourage college-going students to use their education for the benefit of Maui County.
Now in its 19th consecutive year, the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation Scholarship (formerly the Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship) is offering scholarships to students who will attend an accredited four-year college or university. To date, the program has awarded more than $55,000 in scholarships to Maui, Molokai, and Lanai school seniors who have demonstrated a passion to return to Maui County after college to contribute to the community.
To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be Maui County residents who are already enrolled in or enrolled in a full-time program at any accredited four-year college or university for the 2022-23 academic year. Applicants must also demonstrate financial need and plan to return and work in Maui County upon graduation.
Last spring, German awarded five Maui County high school graduate scholarships worth $1,000 each. Recipients are Mallory Joe from Molokai High School, Miley Laborga from Lanai High School, Alexis Asato from Baldwin High School, Tristin Kalawila Matsuura from Sibre Hall and Awale Mui from Hana High School.
“I encourage all students attending college in Maui County who have a desire to contribute positively to our community to apply,” German said. “Since the scholarship was established, there have been many students who have graduated and returned to Maui County with a goal and desire to support our community and island lifestyle.”
Applications for the next round of scholarships are now available online at germanfoundation.org. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
