CONGRATULATIONS MYA PARISH AND EMMETT McCOWIN; OUR FIRST ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS!!!

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.

SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

The HSN Scholarship Fund awards scholarships based on a comprehensive process.  Areas that are reviewed by the committee include but are not limited to the following: Academic Accomplishments, Community Service, Financial Need and involvement in Student Athletics.  The HSN Scholarship fund pays scholarship funds directly to the recipient’s school. The HSN Scholarship is awarded without regard to race, color, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.  Scholarships awarded are based upon the availability of funds and additional qualifying criteria.
