Nominate A Nurse

In honor of National Nurse’s Week and in recognition of all those in Kansas who continue to serve the people of our state by working in the field of nursing, we will be giving away fifty, $1000 scholarships to Kansas residents with a current nursing license.

The scholarship money will be placed into a Kansas LearningQuest 529 account, which can be used to pay off student loans, pay for continuing education, or to save for future education costs for the recipient or their children or grandchildren. Nominations will be accepted through midnight May 12, 2020. All completed entries will be considered and winners will be notified by May 19, 2020.

The Kansas State Treasurer's Office administers the Learning Quest 529 Education Savings program. Learning Quest helps Kansas families save for their children in tax-advantaged 529 accounts. Find out more at

"You certainly don’t have to look very far to find someone you know that is serving in the nursing field in Kansas. These are hard-working individuals who spend many hours on their feet caring for people in some of their most trying times, physically and mentally. If you know someone you’d like to thank for the work that they do, now is your opportunity to nominate them for one of these scholarships." Learn more about Lynn.
