In addition to the Hill Country Community Foundation Scholarships for graduating high school seniors, HCCF provides continuing scholarships to former HCCF scholarship recipients that are pursuing a degree in an education, health, financial services or engineering related field and desire to return to the Burnet community after graduation from their college or university.
