The Kansas Nursing Service Scholarship is designed to encourage enrollment in nursing programs by Kansans committed to practicing as a LPN or RN in Kansas. Recipients sign an agreement/promissory note 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. All applicant must complete the FAFSA.
1. Acceptance to a Kansas nursing program (pre-nursing will not be funded);
2. Commitment by an eligible sponsor* licensed by the state to fund up to half of the scholarship and provide full-time employment to the recipient after licensure;
3. Complete/submit the FAFSA and the State of Kansas Student Aid Application; and
4. Student must be enrolled in 12 credit hours or more.
Financial need is considered if there are more applicants than available funding.
The recipient must be: a Kansas resident, enrolled in a qualified program, enroll at a Kansas college or university, and
not already awarded an undergraduate degree, unless you are applying for the Nursing Service Scholarships.
Recipients who are enrolled in:
a Licensed Practical Nurse program are eligible for $2,500 each school year or
a Registered Nurse program are eligible for $3,500 each school year.
Sponsors pay from $1,000 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 $1,250; RN $1,750) and the second half awarded in the spring semester.
