Here's what some of our former students say about the IHCC Foundation: "Receiving a Foundation Scholarship... gave me the financial assistance as well as the motivation for continuing my education."--Dr. Brent Cullinan "My brother had also started college. The Foundation Scholarship helped relieve some of the financial strain at home. It allowed me to build the educational foundation to work toward my career."--Kevin Ward "A Foundation Scholarship allowed me to enjoy the total experience at Indian Hills. IHCC provided me with the skills and tools to be where I am today. I would rate Indian Hills as a first class experience."--Scott Hart
