The THRIVE Amarillo program will invest in the success of Amarillo by providing a better educated and trained workforce through a knowledge-based economy in order to expand and enhance our local economy for future generations.
THRIVE Amarillo is more than a scholarship program. It is a community-wide promise to increase student enrollment in post-secondary education. This promise offers our local students the opportunity to use their skills and talents beyond high school and on into college. These achievements will directly impact and improve the health of the Amarillo economy.
THRIVE Amarillo provides eligible students a last-dollar scholarship, meaning the scholarship will cover the cost of tuition, books and mandatory fees not covered by the Pell grant and other tuition assistance programs. Students may use the scholarship at Amarillo College for up to 60-hours of course credit.
