College of Engineering awards $28,000 each to Wallace Scholarship recipients
The Wichita State College of Engineering announced the recipients of the 2018 Wallace Scholarship on Friday, Feb. 9.
Each student will receive a total of $28,000 to attend Wichita State for four years.
Wallace Scholars are a community of more than 40 engineering students from every class and nearly every major within the College of Engineering.
Wichita State University’s College of Engineering has named its newest class of Wallace Scholars.
The 2018 Wallace Scholars were announced Friday, Feb. 9, at a ceremony in the Experiential Engineering Building. Wallace Scholarship recipients will receive $28,000 each to attend Wichita State for four years.
Wallace Scholars are a community of more than 40 engineering students from every class and nearly every major in the College of Engineering. Wallace Scholars are involved on the WSU campus and within the Wichita community to promote engineering, math, science and community service.
Selection for the Wallace Scholarship is based on recipients’ high school GPA, ACT score and performance at the annual Wallace Invitational for Scholarships in Engineering (WISE), which was held in November and drew 205 students from 13 states, making it the largest WISE competition to date.
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 350 engineering majors at WSU.
