Chicago, IL --- Harness Horsemen International is now accepting applications for the 25th annual Jerome L. Hauck Scholarship. The application deadline is May 1.
The $4,000 award is granted to a son or daughter of a full-time Standardbred groom, or the son or daughter of a member of an HHI-affiliated association.
The HHI Scholarship Foundation was organized in 1986 in memory of Jerome L. Hauck, one of the founders of HHI who served as its president for 12 years. The Foundation seeks to assist students exhibiting outstanding achievement among their peers, and to promote higher education and citizenship.
The award is given to a student who has demonstrated exceptional scholarship, citizenship and leadership, who has completed high school or its equivalent and is entering college for the first time. Character and personality traits are also reviewed in the selection process, and financial need is a consideration as well.
Applications must be received in the HHI office by May 1. For more information or an application, contact your local horseman’s association or HHI at 319 High Street, Suite 2, Burlington, NJ 08016, 609.747.1000, or e-mail email@example.com.
