What is the Boomtown Scholarship? 

Through a $1.5 million bequest from the estate of Don C. Dilley, Jr., a partnership was formed between the Amarillo Area Foundation, Borger Economic Development Corporation, Frank Phillips College and Borger Independent School District.  The gift will be used to create the "Don C. Dilley, Boomtown Scholarship.”

The Boomtown Scholarship will cover, for eligible students, tuition and fees at Frank Phillips College for up to 36-credit hours.  Along with the required 24 dual credit hours, Borger ISD will fund, this will give students 60 college hours.  This is a tremendous opportunity for Borger High School students.

To be eligible to be a Dilley Borger Boomtown Scholar a student must reside in the Borger ISD attendance zone on or before the last day of their 9th-grade year and reside in the attendance zone until graduation from BHS and earn a final grade point average of 80 or higher. The children of employees of Borger ISD are eligible if they reside in the Borger ISD attendance zone at any time during their 9th, 10th, or 11th-grade years or enroll by the first day of the 12th grade, attend full-time and graduate from BHS.
