Dane G. Hansen to Establish Mobile Application Scholarship

Goodland, KS. (08/17/2018)  – A new scholarship for Northwest Tech’s Mobile Application Development students will be available in the fall of 2018.


The Northwest Tech Endowment Foundation has received a $30,000 charitable gift from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation to establish a scholarship endowment fund for Mobile Application students who agree to seek employment in the twenty-six county service area of the Foundation after graduation. According to the foundation, the fund will alleviate the significant shortage of trained Mobile Application and Gaming information technology employees in Kansas.


President Ben Schears stated, “We are committed to growing an educated labor pool of mobile application programmers for the workforce of Northwest Kansas. Our hope is to attract and grow application development business and industry.”


Northwest Tech’s Mobile Application and Gaming program continues to be one of the most innovative programs on Northwest Tech’s campus. The program combines classroom theory with hands on training that makes students career and real world ready.
