Kansas Nursing Service Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $4,500

Award Deadline: May 1, 2024

The Kansas Nursing Service Scholarship is designed to encourage enrollment in LPN or RN nursing programs by Kansans committed to practicing in Kansas. Recipients sign an agreement/promissory note with the State of Kansas to practice nursing at a specific facility one year for each year of 
scholarship support. The sponsor provides partial scholarship funding and employment upon licensure of the recipient and the State of Kansas funds the balance, unless the sponsor is a mental health treatment facility as they do not provide a share of the scholarship assistance.

The Kansas Nursing Service Scholarship accepts applicants with degrees, but who have not received Registered Nurse licensure.

Preference in awarding is given to a mental health or treatment facility.

Mental health treatment facilities do not share the cost of the scholarship assistance.

  • New recipients must sign an agreement/promissory note.
  • All recipients must sign a sponsor agreement.
  • Renewal applicants are students who received this scholarship the prior year.

Award Amounts:

  • Recipients enrolled full-time in a Licensed Practical Nurse program are eligible for $3,500 each school year.
  • Recipients enrolled full-time in a Registered Nurse program are eligible for $4,500 each school year.

Sponsors pay from $1,000 up to one-half of the scholarship and the State of Kansas pays the remaining amount.

Each scholarship amount is divided — one half awarded in the fall semester (LPN $1,750; RN $2,250) and the second half awarded in the spring semester.

Recipient obligation:

Scholarship recipients work for the sponsor who provided a portion of the funds. The service obligation to Kansas is one year of working full-time for the sponsor for each year of scholarship support.

If a recipient is unable to fulfill the service obligation to the state they will be subject to repaying the state portion of the scholarship they received plus accrued interest at a rate which is equivalent to the interest rate applicable to loans made under the federal PLUS program at the time the agreement was first entered into plus five percentage points (currently that interest rate is 13.05%).
