Moore County Health Foundation
The Moore County Health Foundation raises funds to provide Moore County RN students with scholarships so they may improve their education and skills in a local setting.
In 2016, the Moore County Health Foundation established an endowment fund in support of the new Amarillo College RN program with the introduction of a Spring Scholarship Luncheon fundraiser. We then were able to raise additional funds in excess of $100,000 in total for the endowment at our annual Harvest fundraiser in September of 2016.
This previous year, the funds raised were used to award the first seven scholarships for students enrolled in the 2017 summer semester and covered the cost of the full semester for each student who received it. Eleven ACMCC students received 2017 fall semester scholarships, Fifteen received 2018 spring semester scholarships, ten students received a 2018 summer semester scholarships, fourteen students received a 2018 fall semester scholarship, and fourteen students received a 2019 spring semester scholarship.
The qualifications for the Moore County Health Foundation Nursing scholarship are as follows:
Scholarship amounts will vary but may be for up to a single semester of assistance. Amounts will be based on the amount of qualified applications received per semester.
The 2019 Summer semester scholarship application is now open. Applications will be accepted until May 13, 2019.
