Since 1999, Kansas Academy of Physician Assistants (KAPA) has helped to award $4,000 in scholarship money to 11 students at Wichita State University’s (WSU) PA program. In 2006, KAPA contributed $28,000 to establish and endow the Kansas Academy of Physician Assistants Endowed Fellowship. This became one of the 4 PA specific endowed scholarships at the University's Foundation. (http://foundation.wichita.edu/spirit-of-the-gift)

The scholarship is open to PA students entering their second year, who plan to practice in Kansas upon graduation.
