What is the Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize for Creativity?
The Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize for Creativity is a four-year full-tuition scholarship to be awarded annually to an incoming student whose work of creative written expression is judged to best reflect the originality, artistry, and dynamism embodied in Broadway’s Hamilton. Winner of eleven 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Hamilton tells the story of our country’s youngest founding father; Alexander Hamilton, a brash young immigrant who changed the course of history. The scholarship was established in honor of Hamilton writer, composer, and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda ’02 and director Thomas Kail ’99 – award-winning Wesleyan alumni who embody the University’s spirit of boldness, creativity, and experimentation.

Hay Day Ranch is built on the faith and hope of Susan Hingst, a Virginia based teacher, horse enthusiast, and child advocate. The ranch is the realization of Susan’s vision to combine rescue horses in equine assisted learning to restore emotional ties and trust in both the horses and troubled youth. The program is for children ages 5 to 18.
Equine assisted learning and healing is the discipline of using horses as a therapeutic experience. There are many positive benefits for those who participate in equine activity programs: communications skills, impulse control, patience, confidence, boundaries and trust.
