The Henrik Lundqvist Foundation is proud to announce that Casey Theriault has been named the first-ever S.A.V.E. Scholar of the Year with Julia Esposito and Carly Peterson receiving the two runner-up prizes. This new, need-based scholarship program exclusively for alumni of the HLF Young Ambassadors Program is awarded to individuals exhibiting exemplary dedication to Service and Academics, who possess strong Values and display overall character Excellence.
In late 2019, the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation, led by NY Rangers’ goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and his wife Therese, committed to launching its first scholarship program with an annual fund of $30,000 (a nod to Henrik’s #30). Since making this commitment, a global pandemic has dramatically altered the world, including the lives of our Young Ambassador Alumni, many of whom are attending college or graduate school. HLF is proud to be able to launch this Scholarship in these uncertain times and support the education of our most promising Young Leaders and this year, thanks to a gift from an HLF Board Member, $40,000 total is being awarded, $20,000 to the winner and $10,000 to each runner up.
