The fifth class of Rudd Scholars includes 16 Kansas high school seniors who will attend Wichita State University.
Each recipient will receive a full-ride scholarship, which includes tuition, fees, on-campus housing, and considerable networking and coaching support along the way. All Rudd Scholars are from Kansas and will attend Wichita State, Emporia State or Fort Hays State.
“We couldn’t ask for a better collaborative partnership from the Rudd Foundation, in terms of not only making sure Shocker Rudd Scholars graduate from college debt-free but also their hands-on deployment of additional networking, mentoring, and fellowship activities for their students,” said Bobby Gandu, assistant vice president and director of undergraduate admissions. “Based on the track record from the first four classes of Rudd Scholars, this fifth class will be students who thrive academically at Wichita State, while also securing incredible internships and being student leaders in our campus community.”
