Hunt Leadership Scholars Program

The Nancy Ann and Ray L. Hunt Leadership Scholars Program allows students to combine learning and leadership. It enables outstanding student leaders from all walks of life to come to SMU - students whose leadership gifts will have a significant impact on our SMU community and, eventually, on the quality of our society.


Ray L. Hunt

As time passes and you look back upon the years that you spent on this campus, you will find that, while you were here, you developed some of your closest enduring friendships, realized some of the more important truths that subsequently fashioned your life, and refined many of the skills which, hopefully, will allow you to compete successfully in the rapidly changing world in which you will live.

An Incredible Network of People

“Being a Hunt scholar has provided me with a community of like-minded individuals and the best of friends. The community of Hunt scholars is an incredible network of people, all helping each other to reach our goals. My fellow Hunt scholars have connected me to amazing leadership opportunities that I otherwise could not have gotten!” - Victoria Sullivan, Class of 2023
