2019 marks the 27th year the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Education Foundation has been awarding scholarships to local graduating seniors. As a result of successful fundraising and monetary contributions from HBA members as well as others within the community; the Foundation surpassed its annual goal and was able to increase the value of scholarships from ten scholarships at $3,000 in 2017 to eleven scholarships at $3,500 in 2018.
