WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The recession has scholarship officials
worried at Kansas' three main universities, but they said they
don't expect it to affect awards to students this fall.
The University of Kansas had planned to spend just $23 million
on scholarships for the current academic year but ended up handing
out almost $30 million.
KU Endowment president Dale Seuferling says for next year, the
university is planning to dole out another $23 million.
Kansas State University awarded about $11 million in
scholarships in the current school year and plans to hand out the
same in the coming year.
Wichita State University handed out $4.5 million in general
scholarships for the current academic year and plans to hand out
about the same amount next year.
