Hunter Watson Memorial Fund
Grants of up to $5,000 to USA and St. Vincent youth (ages 16 to 25) to pursue their innovative ideas and projects. Funding is intended to provide financial support to young people who demonstrate a passion and enthusiasm towards positive, new projects.
While the application process is open to any innovative idea or project, special consideration will be given to applications in the areas of Music and Performing Arts, Computer Science and Technology, and Entrepreneurship.
The purpose of this Fund is to encourage young people to follow their dreams, to think outside-the-box and to pursue their greatest vision in life. The HBW Fund will provide assistance to students who have a real passion: whether it be music, performing arts, academics, computer science and technology, and have a financial need in order to explore their goals.
Grant winners will be assigned a Mentor to encourage their progress and offer advice as needed.
