The Kansas Nursing Service Scholarship requires a commitment to practicing as an LPN or RN in a specific Kansas location. Applicants must locate a sponsor (generally a hospital or long-term care facility) to provide partial scholarship funding and provide employment upon licensure of the recipient.
Designed to encourage enrollment in nursing programs by Kansans committed to practicing in Kansas. Recipients sign agreements to practice nursing at specific facilities one year for each year of scholarship support.
- Acceptance to a Kansas nursing program (pre-nursing will not be funded)
- Commitment by an eligible sponsor to fund up to half of the scholarship and provide full-time employment to the recipient within six (6) months after licensure.
Other RestrictionsScholarship recipients work for the sponsor, who provided a portion of the funds, one year for each year of scholarship support. If the recipient changes majors or decides not to work for the sponsor as a nurse, the scholarship becomes a loan (with an interest rate equal to the Federal Plus Loan + an additional 5% subject to change annually) accruing from the date scholarship funds are released by the Board of Regents office.
