Josh Jerman of Hawaiʻi 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 14th consecutive year, the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation 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 $40,000 in scholarships to Maui, Moloka‘i and Lāna‘i high school seniors who have displayed a passion for returning to Maui County after college to contribute to the community.
Last year, Jerman awarded three Maui County high school graduates scholarships of $1,000 each. The recipients were Dean Omura from Lahainaluna High School, Jasmine Cabajar from Maui High School and Nohea Stoner from Hāna High and Elementary School.
Omura is attending the University of Portland, where he is pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering. Cabajar is a student at Portland State University, where she is studying pre-physical therapy. Stoner is 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.
