Wichita State University’s College of Engineering has awarded 15 high school seniors $300,000 in Wallace scholarships. Each scholar will receive a four-year renewable scholarship for a total of $20,000.

Wallace Scholars for the 2012-2013 academic year are:

Charles Bradfield, Derby, Kan., Wichita Collegiate School

Tanner Bruton, Meriden, Kan., Jefferson West High School

Samuel Buller, Lincoln, Neb., Lincoln North Star High School

Rustin Clark, Moundridge, Kan., Moundridge High School

Kate Dennis, Eudora, Kan., Eudora High School

Brandon Hale, Wichita, Kan., Wichita Northeast Magnet

Micah Mohr, Wichita, Kan., Wichita High School Northwest

Shauntel Pearson, Wichita, Kan., Wichita Northeast Magnet

Selection for the Wallace Scholarship is based on the recipients’ high school GPA, ACT scores and performance at the annual Wallace Invitational for Scholarships in Engineering (WISE), which was held last November.

In addition to the scholarship, selected students will become part of the Wallace Scholars, a community of engineering students composed of more than 40 members from every class and

major within the College of Engineering. Wallace Scholars are involved on the WSU campus and within the Wichita community to promote engineering, math and science.

The Wallace Scholarship is made possible through the Dwane and Velma Wallace Endowment, created in 1976, which supports scholarships for engineering students and provides funds for the College of Engineering. Since 1980, the endowment has benefited more than 250 engineering majors at WSU.
