Wichita State University has announced the sixth class of TRIO/GEAR UP Scholars. Seventeen students were selected from the five pre-college TRIO programs.
Each student will have his or her first year costs for tuition and fees, books and on-campus housing covered through this unique scholarship program.
Additional scholarship opportunities may be available for subsequent years based on academic progress.
"The TRIO and Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs, GEAR UP, are pleased to identify exceptional students who have the opportunity to matriculate at Wichita State University," said Deltha Q. Colvin, associate vice president for Campus Life and University Relations, Special Programs. "We are pleased that the campus' many resources and opportunities are available to ensure that the students will be helped to make a smooth academic and personal transition to the next phase of their life."
The TRIO/GEAR UP scholarship program was started in 2008 as a way to benefit high school students who are participating in one of the pre-college, federally funded TRIO programs housed on WSU's campus.
The TRIO programs provide comprehensive services to low-income, first generation, foster care and disabled individuals.
Assistance is provided through academic, career, social and accommodation service through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs.
Wichita State houses more TRIO programs than any institution in the country.
