Opportunities for students and for donors
Working together with more than 14,000 donors, the WSU Foundation manages more than 900 scholarships, more than 80 fellowships and more than 30 professorships for the students and faculty of Wichita State. In addition, the WSU Foundation raises money for faculty and staff development, and classroom and building needs.
What follows is a guide for students seeking financial support for school and donors who want to establish new funds. Our comprehensive list of WSU student funds, including scholarships and fellowships, was developed to educate students on the funds available to them and the criteria necessary to apply, and also to honor our donors for their investment in our university and our students.

Learn about the people & organizations that created these funds
Our Spirit of the Gift biography project is an effort to catalogue the histories behind the many endowed scholarships, fellowships and non-scholarship funds at Wichita State University.
Although every effort is made to provide accurate information, the student fund information contained does not imply any contractual obligation. Changes occur regularly and all awards are subject to and based on availability of funds.
Student Funding Definitions
Scholarships are awards for undergraduate students and may, based on individual guidelines, be renewed so long as the student meets the criteria for selection up to four years or upon completion of the baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first.
Fellowships are awards for graduate students and may, based on individual guidelines, be renewed so long as the student meets the criteria for selection up to two years or upon completion of the master’s degree, whichever comes first.
