Apply before November 15 to the Hunter’s Fund grant program, honoring the legacy of Hunter Brooks Watson

Syracuse University student innovators are invited to apply before November 15 to the Hunter’s Fund grant program which helps young people use their talents and passions to find ways to improve the world.  Hunter’s Fund invests in young people, ages 16-25, who have demonstrated talent, experience, and passion. The grant program rewards innovation and reflects the talents and passions that Hunter Brooks Watson brought to his life. The grants honor his legacy and provide support for young people who also approach life with powerful ideas.

Preference is given to applications in the areas of music, performing arts, computer science and entrepreneurship. (See this newsletter archive of past recipients)

All awards range from $500 to $5,000 based on submitted budgets. All grantees are partnered with an appropriate mentor to encourage their progress and growth as they move towards their goals. 

Previous Syracuse University student winners included Taylor Lotte ’19 and Nick Barba ’20.

So that ideas can be funded as they emerge, applications are reviewed and accepted twice a year.  The next deadline is November 15 with grantees announced in January 2022.
