The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation is excited to announce a $1 million grant to Amarillo College. This grant—the largest the Foundation has made to date—will support the Texas community college’s innovative Adams Earn & Learn Program, a multiyear effort to accelerate work-based learning in the Texas Panhandle region. The pilot program will create a proof of concept for healthcare and STEM programs with the long-term goal of expanding work-based learning opportunities into all program areas. The Thoma Foundation grant will support coordinators for the program, stipends for STEM and healthcare students, and project evaluation.
