At Wichita State University, there are two types of scholarships student-athletes may apply for: either an academic scholarship or a bowling scholarship. Student-athletes wishing to be considered for scholarship aid through the Bowling Program need to complete a Bowling Scholarship Application form in the Spring prior to attending Wichita State and trying out for the bowling team. The deadline for submitting a Bowling Scholarship Application is May 1. The Coaching Staff will review the scholarship applications and award Bowling Program Scholarships.
The philosophy of the WSU Shocker Bowling program philosophy centers around a sincere belief in the potential of the student-athlete. This athlete-centered philosophy fervently believes the student-athlete can do or become nearly anything when they have, acquire, and utilize certain qualities. We believe these success qualities are: an intense desire to learn, enormous work ethic, and unwavering loyalty, especially to the program’s philosophy. To the degree the student-athlete demonstrates these three things, we believe they can improve dramatically as a person, student, and athlete.
