CUKC Director of Financial Aid, Danielle Hicks, believes scholarships like this are game changers for students.
“The Kansas Promise Act Scholarship is important for a number of reasons,” Hicks said. “Not the least of which is that it makes higher education accessible to those who otherwise may not have the opportunity to earn a post-secondary degree. It also makes that student getting an associate’s degree in one of these high demand fields more likely to be hired, which pumps money back into the Kansas economy. It’s full circle and benefits not only those who are awarded a Kansas Promise Scholarship, but the state as a whole.”
CUKC has awarded more than $19,000 in Kansas Promise Scholarships to eligible students in its College of Health Sciences. Students may apply by going to https://sfa.kansasregents.org/login.jsp Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
