The Josh Jerman Foundation was established to provide assistance to deserving charities and nonprofit organizations throughout Maui County. The Foundation has contributed to a number of organizations, including Project S.E.A.-Link, Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Family Life Church, Maui AIDS Foundation, Whale Trust, Nature Conservancy of Hawai‘i, Women Helping Women of Maui County and Haleakala Waldorf School.

The Josh Jerman Foundation is also the driving force behind the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation Scholarship (formerly the Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship), now in its fifteenth consecutive year, that 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, 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.   The Foundation was built upon the principle that education is key to both individual success and the health of our community, and since its inception, the program has created an immeasurable impact on the lives of scholarship recipients.

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
