The new scholarships are part of HSNY's mission to advance the art and science of horology. Amit Puri, president and CEO of Kurtek, a company specializing in technology for the space industry, drove the new scholarships' creation. The scholarships were funded by American businesses such as Tiny Jewel Box in Washington DC, London Jewelers in New York and New Jersey, and Samy Al Bahra, founder of Bahra Ventures and a collector of independent timepieces.

In addition to the new scholarships, HSNY already offers support through The Henry B. Fried Scholarship, The Howard Robbins Award, The Grace Fryer Scholarship for Female Students, The Oscar Waldan Scholarship for Jewish Students, and The Benjamin Banneker Scholarship for Black Students.

Eligible students can apply for these scholarships yearly from January 1 to March 1. The scholarships are awarded in April, with up to $5,000 for the Sauter and London scholarships and up to $10,000 for the Willard award. Prospective students may also apply, provided they are enrolled in a full-time watchmaking school.

Details on individual requirements can be found on the HSNY website.
