Elementary school students can now start preparing financially for college with the approval of a new grant.
Today the Amarillo Independent School District has been awarded five million dollars over a three year period by the Amarillo Area Foundation and the Don and Sybil Harrington Foundation.
Funds are for the ace scholarship program that helps economically disadvantaged students pay for college if they meet certain academic criteria.
This grant allows the district to expand the scholarship fund to include more schools.
