What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

My favorite part about being a Hunt Scholar is the close-knit community that comes with the scholarship. I have made strong connections with other motivated students and have built a support system of friends and mentors. The Hunt Scholars Program motives me to be the best version of myself and has encouraged me to grow as a student and as a leader.
