A network for future Jewell students
The grants, which are a part of the state’s Caring for Missourians initiative, will be given for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 fiscal years. Grant funding can be used to hire faculty, purchase educational equipment and offer scholarships. Money for the grants came from revenue generated from nursing licensing fees collected by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
The board selected both public and private colleges as grant recipients, with a maximum award of up to $150,000 per year. Jewell received $149,750 for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
