Pre-Application Information:

- Deadlines are June 15 and November 15.
- Selected grantees are announced in August and January.

So that ideas can be funded as they emerge, applications are reviewed and accepted twice a year.

The Hunter’s Fund Grants Committee reviews all applications that meet the stated requirements. Each application is assigned a score for each response. Each reviewer’s scores are added together to achieve an overall ranking for the application. Therefore it is important to answer every question and submit 2 recommendations to achieve the highest score. The top recommended candidates are sent to Hunter’s Fund Board of Directors, who makes the final decisions. Applicants receiving the five highest scores may be asked to submit a 1 to 2 minute video to personally describe their project and passion.
