Students from Buffalo can receive a four-year scholarship to study music at UB through this fund.
The John H. Hunt Memorial Fund provides a four-year scholarship to a senior student at the Buffalo Public School’s Academy of Visual and Performing Arts who has been accepted to study music at the University at Buffalo’s music department.
The fund was established by Hunt Commercial Real Estate Corp., Buffalo Renaissance Foundation, Inc., and Mr. Myron M. Hunt.
