Student receives WSU scholarships
Basehor-Linwood High School senior Ian Smith recently received several scholarships from Wichita State University.
From the engineering department he got a $10,000 GEEKS scholarship divided in equal payments over the freshman and sophomore years.
In addition, he received a Project Lead the Way Scholarship of $4,000 to be split in equal payments over four years.
These are in addition to WSU general scholarships of $2,000 Academic Achiever and a $4,000 WSU Housing Scholarship.
The total from WSU for the freshman year scholarships is $12,000.
The freshman year scholarships will cover 75 percent of the cost of Smith’s first year costs at WSU, the school said.
