The Dane G. Hansen Foundation aspires to enhance the quality of life throughout rural communities in northwest Kansas. The Foundation strongly supports the continuing education of rural community members, and will award scholarships to those who are willing to work in the 26 county service area of northwest Kansas upon graduation. Those who receive this scholarship must be currently enrolled in the CCCC nursing program. The scholarship will cover tuition, fees, books, and some miscellaneous expenses.

 

“We are so grateful for the opportunity to receive the student scholarship fund from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation.” said Stefanie Perret MSN.RN, Nursing Department Administrator. “This gift supports the Nursing Departments mission of educating life-long learners to practice professional nursing and provide safe effective care to the communities they serve.”
