Helping Students Attend College Who Have Lost a Parent

Hanna's Story

Hanna Boykin Lost Both of Her Parents in a 14 Month Period

Imagine waking up one day to find you've lost your mother, and then within months reliving the pain when your father passes away as well.

To make matters worse, you're a teenager with 5 siblings and your parents had no life insurance.

This is the sad but true story of Hanna Boykin, the recipient of Huntley Wealth's inaugural Care Scholarship in the Spring of 2017.

Hanna had no idea where she would live after losing her parents, let alone how she would fulfill her dream of becoming a nurse.

Scholarship Details and Requirements

The Huntley Wealth Care Scholarship awards $3,500 in prize money twice per year, in the Fall and the Spring, to high school seniors and college students.

Scholarships are awarded to students who have lost one or both parents, who either had no life insurance or were underinsured.


You may submit an article or a video to be considered for the scholarship.

#1 – Article submissions must be at least 500 words and may be written in MS Word or a Google Document.  Please email your article (or a link to it) to: [email protected].

#2 – Video submissions should be 1 to 3 minutes in length (an amateur cell phone recording is fine).

In either case, tell us your story.

  • Who did you lose?
  • How did that impact your life financially and how do you think your situation would be different if your parent would have had life insurance?
  • Where are you attending (or planning to attend) college and what are you studying?

Life Insurance Ownership Statistics

While the point of our Care Scholarship is to give back to the community, obviously, the stories we read and watch here are a real slap in the face (especially for those of us who are parents) to ensure we have proper life insurance in place.

In fact, the numbers are grim.

  • LIMRA estimates that more than 37 Million U.S. households have no life insurance at all
  • Over 40% of Americans would feel a financial impact within 6 months if the primary bread-winner were to die
  • Yet 65% of Americans say they won’t buy because they believe it’s too expensive or services like internet, cable, and cell phone bills are preventing them from buying

We simply are not ok with these excuses.  

So our message to you is this:

If you don’t have life insurance and you have a spouse or children who depend on your income, get it today!

There’s really no excuse:

So whether it’s from Huntley Wealth or another agency, we don’t care.  Please, just start the process!
