Sowing the seeds for the future of Moore County

Moore County Health Foundation Nursing Scholarship

 

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, and we just closed our 2018 summer semester application.  Recipients will be announced soon.

 

Applications for future semesters will be available typically 8 weeks prior to the start of classes.

 

The qualifications for the Moore County Health Foundation Nursing scholarship are as follows:

 

  • Must be a Moore County Resident
  • Must be pursing a Registered Nurse (RN) degree at the Moore County campus or Amarillo campus of Amarillo College
  • Must be enrolled for the semester for which you are applying for

 

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.
