Local Scholarship Fund Drive
For 75 years, the Huntington University Foundation has raised funds to support a wide variety of initiatives, including scholarships for Huntington County students. With enrollment surpassing 1,000, nearly 20% of students are from Huntington County.
Local students have directly benefited from the tax-deductible gifts of local businesses and citizens to the Huntington University Foundation. In addition, such gifts qualify donors for a special Indiana State income tax credit.
Huntington County Grant
Cash or other appreciated assets may be given to the Huntington County Grant. Scholarships created from this fund are awarded only to residents of Huntington County. The scholarship, once awarded, can follow the recipient all fours years at Huntington University. Currently, 40 Huntington County residents receive $1,500-$2,500 each from this restricted fund.
