Not an all-star athlete or an A+ student? No problem -- scholarships for the everyday student!
Letterman Telecommunications Scholarship
You don’t have to be a brainiac to make it big, and David Letterman has proved that. He openly admits that he wasn’t the smartest student, but what he lacked in school smarts, he made up for in creativity. That’s why he gives juniors and seniors at Ball State University the chance to pay for their education without having to prove their genius mind.
While grades are not considered, applicants are required to have visions of a career in telecommunications. To apply, students must submit a written project, a research effort, an audio tape, a video tape, a film or similar presentation on their creativity in the realm of telecommunications.
Deadline: April 2, 2012
