AMARILLO -- Mark your calendar's. Giving day is November 20th. 

The Amarillo Area Foundation is using Giving Day as a fund raiser for their ACE Scholarship program.

The ACE scholarship program pays for up to 130 hours of tuition, fees, and books for students at Amarillo College or West Texas A&M University.

But those students have to keep good grades and attendence through high school. 

More than 1,100 students have graduated from WT or AC with the help of that scholarship. 

This is the 20th year for the ACE Scholarship program.
