Spirit AeroSystems Announces University Scholarships For Kansas Students


Spirit AeroSystems announced its plans to provide more than $570,000 of scholarship support to selected students at Wichita State University, the University of Kansas, and Kansas State University.

In all, Spirit is funding 18 scholarships across three universities. There are 12 scholarships available at Wichita State University and three each at KU and K-State. In addition, one scholarship will be earmarked for a student coming out of the Upward Bound Math Science program at Wichita State University.

The program is for students interested in a career in engineering and business. Each scholarship will provide $8,000 annually to cover tuition, fees, books and supplies. It’s renewable for up to four years.

The scholarships will first be awarded this spring for students in the 2016-2017 freshman class.

The announcement was made at the Kansas Board of Regents meeting held at Wichita State University.
