Wichita State University in USA invites applications for the Global Select Scholarships for the 2018/2019 academic session.

If you transfer from WSU to another institution, your Global Select Scholarship will be rescinded.  If you later return to WSU, you will no longer be eligible for a Global Select Scholarship and you will have to pay standard nonresident rates for tuition.

The scholarship may be rescinded if the GPA on your final transcript for admission drops below the minimum requirement.
