HSN Scholarship Launch!!!



HSN Scholarship Application

It’s finally here and we wanted to give a huge shoutout to all of our sponsors, followers and supporters of HSN over the last seven months for helping to make this happen!

The HSN Scholarship Fund was established in 2023. The mission of the HSN scholarship is to provide financial assistance to individuals enrolled in undergraduate studies from a fully accredited college/university/trade school. The foundation of HSN is based on providing a positive social media outlet that highlights the successes of the student athletes in Hopewell Township. As an award for maintaining solid academic achievement while also participating in sports in High School we want to encourage students to pursue a post-secondary education, while continuing to play sports in college.
