Hunt Heroes Foundation Announces $30,000 In Scholarship Grants Awarded to Military Dependents

Hunt Heroes Foundation (HHF), the non-profit organization founded by Hunt Military Communities (HMC), is pleased to announce the winners of its second annual Hunt Heroes Foundation Scholarship for dependents of active-duty military members. This year, HMC committed $30,000 to give to deserving students who are seeking ongoing educational opportunities. Each of the 12 recipients will receive a grant award, ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, to help alleviate the burden of continuing education costs. This year’s scholarship applicant pool increased by 80% compared to last year. 

“Congratulations to each of this year’s recipients, who represent the outstanding achievements of our communities and military families,” said John Ehle, President of HMC and HHF. “It is a great honor to support our military service members and their families through the Hunt Heroes Foundation and we are proud to assist these students as they work toward their educational goals.
