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, over 125 scholarships have been awarded to area nursing students through this program.
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.
