Wichita State University's College of Engineering has awarded 10 high school seniors $200,000 in Wallace Scholarships. Each scholar will receive a four-year renewable scholarship for a total of $20,000.

Selection for the Wallace Scholarship is based on the recipients' high school GPAs, ACT scores and performance at the annual Wallace Invitational for Scholarships in Engineering (WISE), which is held in 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 actively involved on the WSU campus and within the Wichita community to promote engineering, math and science, and community service.

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, 270 engineering students have graduated as Wallace Scholars.

Parker Amos, Maize High School South, aerospace
Joshua Barker, Blue Valley West High School, aerospace
