KBOR accepting grant applications from nursing programs
(Topeka, Kan.) - The Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) is now accepting applications from accredited nursing programs for funding available through the Kansas Nursing Initiative. The initiative was developed in 2006 to address a growing nursing shortage in the state, providing needed resources to nursing education programs.
KBOR makes available a $1.7 million appropriation from the Kansas Legislature to both public and privately-funded educational institutions with accredited nursing programs for nursing faculty and consumable laboratory supplies. The focus of the grants will be on faculty and student success. Grants must be matched on a dollar for dollar basis by the postsecondary educational institution receiving the grant.
