  • Soroptimist International of Wichita has been able to award in excess of $1,000 to several recipients each year. The recipients then also have the chance to receive additional awards at District and Region levels of Soroptimist.

In 1970, Airbus was established as a European consortium of French, German and later, U.K. and Spanish companies. Airbus became a single integrated company in 2001 and in June 2002, Airbus North American Engineering opened its first engineering and design facility in the United States in Wichita. WSU Tech is proud of the graduates of our programs who are now employed by Airbus and with help from the company want to expand this opportunity to more students. As a way of maintaining highly skilled local talent, the company established the Airbus Americas Design Scholarship. Airbus hopes that this scholarship will permit students to allocate more time to studying and less to work, enabling them to participate in research projects and other constructive extracurricular activities.
