Wichita State University’s College of Engineering has named this year’s 11 Wallace Scholars.

Each of the 11 recipients will receive $28,000 to attend Wichita State for four years.

More than 40 students make up the Wallace Scholars community.

They “promote engineering, math, science and community service” within WSU and the Wichita community.
