CHAMPAIGN, Il. (KMOX) - University of Illinois administrators say the number of students coming from rural counties is down considerably.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports 23 counties mostly in southern and western Illinois have sent an average of two or fewer students per year to any of the university’s three campuses during a five-year period.

The university is now offering scholarships to high-achieving students from rural counties.
