Scholarship Program

The Moore County Health Foundation raises funds to provide Moore County LVN & RN students with scholarships to improve their education and skills in a local setting.

 

Nursing Scholarships

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.  The Foundation was then able to raise additional funds in excess of $100,000 in total for the endowment at the annual Harvest fundraiser in September of 2016.

 

In 2017, the funds raised were used to award the first seven scholarships for students enrolled in the summer semester, covering the cost of the full semester for each student who received it.  Since then, eleven 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 most recent awarding of 2019 fall semester  scholarships brought the total of those awarded to over 100.

 

In October of 2019, the Moore County Health Foundation Board voted and approved to include the Frank Phillips College LVN Program into the Nursing Scholarship Program.
