Deena Collins was a beloved mother who sadly passed away in 2020.
Deena was a strong, resilient, and independent woman who touched the lives of everyone she encountered. Deena lived with her family in rural Nebraska, where there was limited access to women’s healthcare and mental health care, leaving many without the help they needed to thrive.
This scholarship aims to honor the life of Deena Collins by supporting women who are passionate about using their careers to help others.
Any female-identifying high school, undergraduate, or graduate student pursuing healthcare (including mental health) in Kansas or Nebraska with a 3.0 or above GPA may apply for this scholarship, but students planning to practice rurally are preferred.
