Many college students apply for numerous scholarships to help offset college tuition costs, and it’s always a great accomplishment for a student to learn they have received a scholarship.

Rocio Parada was recently awarded a $300 scholarship from the Kansas Nurses Foundation to help with college costs.

“The feeling of receiving a scholarship was amazing,” Parada said. “I felt blessed and thankful.”

Parada is currently in the second year of the nursing program at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School and hopes to graduate and become a registered nurse in 2015.

After not qualifying for any federal financial assistance this year, Parada applied to all scholarships brought to her attention by instructors and other mentors. She got word of the receipt of the scholarship in early August via mail and is grateful for the scholarship.

“This definitely got me closer to paying my tuition for the semester and in return, helps me worry less about school debt,” Parada said. “The thought of owing less on college tuition was definitely a peace of mind.”
