The Harness Horsemen International Foundation is pleased to announce that applications for the thirtieth annual Jerome L. Hauck Scholarship are now being accepted.

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 Foundation was organized in 1986 in memory of Jerome L. Hauck, one of the founders of HHI who served as its president for twelve years. The Foundation sleeks 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, 2017. For more information or an application, contact your local horseman’s association or Harness Horsemen International, 319 High Street, Suite 2, Burlington, NJ 08016, (609) 747-1000, or email dhartmannhhi@verizon.net.
