“Bank of the Hills’ support of Hill Country College Fund has made it possible for over 250 Hill Country students to attend Schreiner this year. For many of these students, a college education would be financially out of reach if not for the assistance they receive from HCCF,” said Jennifer Farhoudi, associate director of development for annual giving at Schreiner University. “Their generosity embodies what HCCF is all about— neighbors helping neighbors.”

Since the Hill Country College Fund began in 1977, it has provided more than $8 million in need-based tuition assistance to students from Kimble, Kerr, Gillespie, Kendall, Bandera, Real, and Edwards counties and helps more than 250 Hill Country students annually. Hill Country College Fund grants provide an average of over $2,900 a year per recipient and one hundred percent of funds raised goes to student scholarships.
