OK, so maybe it’s more of a bribe than a scholarship. Whatever Wichita State University wants to call it, each grant drawn down from a $750,000 pool by qualified local students during the 2006-07 school year surely will encourage some students to attend WSU who otherwise wouldn’t. With its enrollment down for a third year, and other regents institutions’ enrollments up, WSU needs to be thinking creatively about recruitment. Besides, those who stay here for college may decide to stay here for good, and Wichita’s future work force will need them.
