In addition, the event began in Warren County, New Jersey, with some of the proceeds going back to support scholarships for students in Warren County. Three scholarships will honor Fred Grotenhuis, who passed away in 2015. Fred was an incredible man, with incredible vision. Together, he and his wife Giulia not only built the event, but financially supported the event since the first year. The scholarships will honor Fred's military service, as well as his occupation in the trade of printing.

A third scholarship was started in the fall of 2016, which participants of the Pumpkin Sling at Picatinny will be eligible. The lastest scholarship is for students that desire to obtain their Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA, which will allow them to fly a small Unmanned Aircraft (sUAS) commercially.

The scholarship will cover the cost of studying for and passing the test for the newly required Airman Knowledge Test administered by the FAA. The course will also cover the cost of access to an online arcGIS program.
