You don't HAVE to, but the more questions you answer, the better we can match you
to the scholarships that align with your interests and other eligibility criteria.
More answered questions can improve your odds!
How we try to help: We do our best to pull most qualifying information directly from Wichita State's
database, but some scholarships look for information we don't have in our system like,
"Are you currently involved in any extracurricular activities?" or "Are any of your
family members currently employed by any of the following companies?" Since some scholarships
may be looking for students who match to certain answers on those questions, that's
where your answers come in!
Why are there so many questions? There are a lot; we know! Many of these questions apply to outside-source scholarships,
not just to our internal Wichita State scholarships. We want to connect you to as
many scholarship resources as possible. Plus, we wouldn't do so if we didn't know
that students actually win outside-source scholarships. Did you know, in 2021-2022,
students brought more than $3 million in outside-source scholarships to Wichita State
through a combination of local and national scholarships?! Shockers win!
Pro Tip: Break the questions up into groups of 10-20 at time, but make a goal to answer them
