Cutting College Costs

An idea for cutting college costs: Turn around the paradigm of hiring college students from the end of the career to the beginning. Identify those students that are self-starters and incent them with “business scholarships.” This model would be similar to an apprentice idea, where the training is picked up by the company, with a commitment to the company after graduation. It is a successful model employed today by the military, and would substantially cut college costs. Colleges could charge full, non-tuition discounting for the businesses, and then offset the resources on scholarships, etc. that would have went to the star students to the next level of students, dispersing it across the enrollment population.
