JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Seven Missouri colleges will share nearly $1 million in state grants to educate more nursing students.

The grants range from $124,000 to $150,000 and are funded by state licensing fees paid by current nurses. Universities may use the money to hire faculty, buy equipment and offer scholarships.

The recipients, announced Thursday, are the University of Missouri campuses in Columbia and St. Louis, Lincoln University, Missouri State University, Research College of Nursing in Kansas City, the University of Central Missouri and Truman State University.
