Kansas Nursing Service Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $4,500
Awards Available: 5
Award Deadline: May 1, 2023

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.

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.
