The Wichita SWE Section has an endowed fund at Wichita State University from which we award an annual scholarship to a deserving student. We have received the applications and are looking for judges to review the applications. This role has a minimal time commitment and can be done on your own time. If you are interested, please contact our scholarship chair Jennifer Marshall ASAP. The chosen application must be submitted by March 2nd. The recipient will receive an invitation to join us at our annual banquet in May.
