Weird (But Worthy) Scholarship Opportunities You Might Qualify For


Have you ever heard a scholarship described as “quirky”? If not, perhaps you haven’t been digging quite deep enough for those evasive bursary and grant opportunities. We’ve rounded up three weird ones that, who knows, you or someone in your life just may qualify for.


Stuck At Prom

No, your mom isn’t making you take your younger cousin to prom. The makers of this scholarship just really want you to get creative with something perhaps more sticky than even a forced dated with a relative: duct tape. What it takes to qualify for this opportunity: create and wear a duct tape creation to your prom, take pictures, and submit. You could stand to win one of five cash prizes, up to $10,000.00.
