Wacky Scholarships

The way the economy is right now, it’s hard to imagine paying for college on your own.

In fact, it’s hard to imagine paying for college on your own when the economy isnt bad.However, some students are facing just such a horrifying circumstance. Whether it’s because their parents don’t have the money or they don’t qualify for much government aid or simply because they worked all summer and just came up short, it’s time to start looking for other avenues to help pay for college.

Before applying  for  loans, there are a few places to check out first. Of course there are the  athletic scholarships, the academic scholarships and the artistic scholarships but there are also scholarships for students from financially unprivileged backgrounds and ethnicities and employee scholarships.

And then, there  are wacky scholarships. Wacky scholarships  can be anything from a skateboarding scholarship to scholarships for vegetarians. It takes a little digging to find them sometimes but finding free money is always worth it. Some have certain GPA requirements but most only ask for an essay.
