More than $1 million in scholarships are available this year through the Amarillo College Foundation.

AC students with a GPA of 2.0 and are enrolling in six credit hours or more for the 2018-2019 school year are eligible to apply for a general scholarship through the Foundation.  There are program specific scholarships with more specific requirements.  The application process and timeline are the same for all AC scholarships.

Applications are accepted until October 15th but preference is given to those who apply early.  The priority deadline is March 1st and quickly approaching.

The AC Foundation reviews more than 2,000 scholarship applications every year, awarding them to nearly one third of the applicants.  Most recipients receive $750-$800 those some get more.
