The non-profit Hunter Watson Memorial Fund is seeking applications from young people, ages 16 to 25, who are seeking support for innovative projects and ideas, especially in the areas of music, performing arts, computer technology and entrepreneurship.

Know someone between the ages of 16 and 25 who has enthusiasm and passion for an innovative idea or project? Is he or she developing new concepts in areas such as music, the performing arts, computer technology or entrepreneurship?

If you do, or if you're such a young person yourself, then check out the non-profit Hunter Brooks Watson Memorial Fund which is seeking grant applications for its June 15th cycle of awards. These grants, up to $5,000 each, are not scholarships for academic studies, but rather direct financial support to assist innovative young people in bringing their ideas and projects to fruition.

In its recent grant cycles the Fund has helped finance new Internet projects, recording studio updates, expansion of online businesses, and several music and performance projects. Grant applicants do not have to be enrolled in school, but simply have to explain through the grant application why funding is needed to move their project forward. There is no cost nor obligation to apply for these competitive grants.

The Memorial Fund was created in honor of Hunter Brooks Watson, a young McLean, Virginia resident who died as a passenger in a car crash in the spring of 2016, just before he was to enter his junior year at Syracuse University. Hunter had already reached high levels of success in a variety of areas, including music, performing, starting a business, and as a computer technology major at Syracuse.

Further information, and the grant application itself, is available online at The application deadline for the current grant cycle is June 15, 2018.
