A federal grant to help graduate students has been awarded to Wichita State University’s school of nursing, the university said in a written statement Thursday.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded a two-year $692,576 grant to Alicia Huckstadt, professor and director of Graduate Programs, School of Nursing, the WSU statement said. She manages the grant.

The money will help students enrolled in Master of Science in Nursing or Doctor of Nursing Practice degree programs to continue studies, join the workforce sooner and graduate with less debt, WSU said.

The awards are used for tuition, books, fees and to reduce living expenses, the university said.
