The Worldwide Youth in Science & Engineering (WYSE) Academic Challenge is a competitive series (i.e., regional, sectional, state) of tests created and administered by the University of Illinois and offered to high school students in Illinois and Missouri. The tests are now offered by more than 50 community colleges and universities and are designed to present a rigorous challenge to the brightest students. Test material is drawn from freshman level college curricula.
Students who participate in WYSE, and attend the University of Illinois have two scholarship opportunities:
1. Students who win at the state level receive a $2,000 scholarship to the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois. Robert Kummerer ('13) was the last winner of this prestigious scholarship.
2. Students who participate in two or more WYSE programs (including summer camps, research programs, and community partnerships including IMAGINE STEM activities, ChiS&E, DREAAM, UNCC, and Girls2Life) can apply for a $3,000 scholarship to the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois.
Topics covered are: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Graphics, English, Mathematics, and Physics.
