Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship Fund


The First Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship Recipient

Scott Long is the first recipient of the Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship. Scott will graduate in May 2013 with a degree in mechanical engineering.

Of the support he recieved during his fifth year of study, Scott says, "The Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship has allowed me to complete my senior year at Wichita State University with a more relaxed feeling. I have been able to concentrate on my studies knowing I will not have debt to pay after graduation. Thank you."


In 2002, a group of Wallace alumni decided to honor what Velma and Dwane did for them by creating the Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship. This scholarship is unique in the sense that it was created to assist fifth-year Wallace scholars during their final year at Wichita State.

When Velma learned of the efforts being led by her Wallace alumni, she was incredibly touched. Giving back to the community was of great importance to Velma and she was proud her scholars were doing the same.

Supporting the Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship is even more meaningful now that Velma and Dwane are no longer with us.

Help carry on the legacy Velma and Dwane created by making your gift now. You can support this scholarship through a one-time gift, a pledge over five years or by remembering Wichita State and the Wallace Alumni Legacy Scholarship in your estate plans.

In addition, your gift will be eligible to be matched by the state of Kansas through Senate Bill 127.




Help us continue this wonderful legacy
at Wichita State University by pledging your support now!
