Congratulations to Trent Madden from Andover High School for being selected as one of nine students to be part of the Koch Scholars program at Wichita State University!

The Koch Scholars program targets high school seniors enrolling in the College of Engineering or the W. Frank Barton School of Business. Selection is based on academic achievement including GPA and test scores; work, volunteer and leadership experiences; an essay, and an interview. The nine finalists were selected from approximately 100 applicants and each will receive between $30,000 and $50,000 during their four-year attendance at WSU.

The program is funded through a $1.54 million pledge from Koch Industries and the Fred and Mary Koch Foundation. The fall 2017 students will be the third freshman class to participate in the Koch Scholar program.
