In 2016, the Amarillo Area Foundation awarded nearly $500,000 in scholarships to area students. Eligibility for scholarship funds is based on a student’s county of residence, college or university, and/or anticipated field of study. While many of the scholarship funds available are for graduating high school seniors, currently enrolled college students are eligible to apply for a select number of scholarships.
