Scholarships are often thought of as useful, helpful, and earned but have you ever thought of them as sexy? On July 27, 2010 U.S. News & World Report published an online study that asked “What is the sexiest scholarship?” U.S. News reportedly spent hours scouring databases, sending E-mails and making phone calls to find their 11 most super sexy scholarships.
The categories in order of least popular to most include; sculpture (0.78%), dance, French and rodeo tied at 1.3%, biology (1.56%), fashion and music tied at 1.82%, Miss America (3.38%), beach volleyball (5.71%), humor (11.17%) and finally Intel Science Talent Search with 69.87%. Forget sweat glistening athletes, romance language speakers or even the mysterious artists type, according to this poll science is heating up more than just Bunsen burners.
