Twenty five high school seniors in Kansas are Rudd Scholarship winners and with that, receive a big financial incentive to stay in state for college. Of the 25 scholarship winners, 15 will attend Wichita State University. Five each will attend Emporia State University and Fort Hays State University next year. The expected value for all 25 winners is $1.4 million over four years.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the exceptionally high-caliber, well-rounded students that were chosen for this year’s Rudd Scholarship,” said Peter Najera, president of the Rudd Foundation. “We expect them to maintain their grades and graduate in four years, and in return they will earn their degree debt free.”
