Since its inception, the founders have raised more than $500,000 from members of the Hungarian American community, churches, organizations, and the Sunshine Lady Foundation (SLF), directed by Mrs. Doris Buffett. Scholarship recipients must have an excellent academic record, outstanding recommendations from teachers or clergy, and proven financial need.
