Financial assistance has become a real life factor facing students desiring to further their education at an institute of higher learning. Towards the goal of community transformation, Foothills offers seven college scholarships to graduating seniors from Molalla and Colton High Schools, Country Christian School, or any graduating senior who is a member of Foothills Community Church. The scholarships are based on the core values of Foothills Church. Click here for answers to frequently asked questions.
