Thomas O. Hunter Leadership

Tom Hunter and former Dean Cammy Abernathy congratulate the 2016 scholarship recipients.

The Thomas O. Hunter Leadership Scholarships are annually awarded to engineering undergraduate or graduate student leaders. Tom Hunter is an active chair of the Engineering Leadership Institute Advisory Board. He spent his entire career at Sandia National Labs, and was serving as its president when he retired in 2010. He’s still very much involved in advising and lecturing on issues of national safety, energy, and nuclear non-proliferation, as well as promoting the importance of leadership in engineering. Dr. Hunter has made a gift to the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering to continue to recognize those who have displayed merit in the area of leadership. The Hunter Leadership Scholarship Awards are intended to highlight and award those who have displayed exceptional merit in leadership activities and academic scholarship.

Award of these scholarships will be made through the new process initiated for the Fall 2024 semester (and beyond). A link to information about award criteria and requirements will be provided here as soon as available.
