Clay Hunt Fellowship Program
Team Rubicon unites military veterans and first responders, capitalizing on the mission focus and small-team ethos of these groups, to deploy effective disaster relief teams around the world. Marine veteran Clay Hunt served in the infantry alongside Team Rubicon cofounder Jake Wood in both Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2007, Clay was wounded in action by an enemy sniper. Following his service, Clay helped establish Team Rubicon by deploying to Haiti and Chile, before dying by suicide. The Bob Woodruff Foundation is proud to continue our investment in this program, developed in Clay Hunt’s memory, to provide meaningful opportunities to veterans seeking mission and community. This Bob Woodruff Foundation grant provides funds the fellowship and capstone projects of twelve 2018 Clay Hunt fellows, and twelve 2019 Clay Hunt fellows. This significant investment will align the BWF granting schedule with the Team Rubicon fellow selection process, and permit BWF greater interaction with future Clay Hunt fellows.
