Wichita State University's College of Engineering awarded 11 high school seniors more than $200,000 in Wallace Scholarships on Friday, Feb. 14. Each scholar will receive a four-year renewable scholarship for a total of $20,000.

Selection for the Wallace Scholarship is based on recipients' high school GPAs, ACT scores and performance at the annual Wallace Invitational for Scholarships in Engineering (WISE), which was 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 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, the endowment has benefited more than 270 engineering majors at WSU.

Wallace Scholars for the 2014-2015 academic year:

Joshua Albert, Andale High School, mechanical engineering

Isaac Brethour, Shawnee Mission South High School, aerospace engineering

Alexandra Deghand, DeSoto High School, bioengineering

Katelyn Dugan, Bishop Carroll High School, mechanical engineering
