Scholarships only to high school students who are residents of Lea County, NM.

Jack Maddox Distinguished Scholarship Program

The scholarship program awards five scholarships to high school juniors in Lea County, New Mexico, each year. The five young scholars chosen will receive a scholarship for undergraduate study. One scholarship will cover the costs of undergraduate tuition, required texts, lab, other required fees, and room and board to the college or university of the scholar's choice in the continental United States. The remaining four scholarships will provide each Maddox Scholar with $20,000 ($5,000 per year for four years) for undergraduate study at the college or university of the scholar's choice in the continental United States. Applicants must be either natural-born or naturalized U.S. citizens. .

Program-Related Investment

The foundation has made a PRI in the form of a loan to a community capital fund to promote social welfare and alleviate poverty and to a local residential treatment facility for adolescents. Historically, the foundation has made PRIs in the form of loans to a university for the construction of a dorm, an arts commission for facility renovations, a youth organization, as well as for the purchase of land to be used for the construction of homes for low-income families, and equity investments in community development organizations. The foundation makes loans where, in its judgment, doing so is more appropriate than making grants. The foundation does not have a formal loan program, instead it utilizes loans as part of its overall grant strategy.
