If your students prefer iambic pentameter to the periodic table, they may want to consider using poetry as a way to pay for school.
The Poetry Foundation hosts the Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship, which awards five $15,000 scholarships to aspiring young poets.

Sometimes in college, it’s hard to find the time to study for exams, write papers and get to all your meetings, let alone apply for scholarships. That’s why a scholarship with little to no work is crazy to pass up.
To apply for the College Prowler No Essay Competition, students just have to fill out a brief form. Each month, one applicant is selected for a $2,000 scholarship.
Deadline: April 30, 2011

The Ronald Reagan College Leaders Scholarship seeks to recognize students who emulate the late President’s American values and constitutional principles.
In the 2010 – 2011, the program funded $163,500 worth of scholarships in amounts of $7,500, $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000.
To apply, college students must submit a 500 – 750 word essay that describes their background, future pursuits and examples of leadership on campus promoting freedom, American values and constitutional principles. Students can apply during sophomore year for a scholarship for their junior year. Scholarships are renewable for senior year as well.
Deadline: Information for the 2011 – 2012 scholarship program will be available online in August.
