You don’t have to be a rock star student or the MVP of your basketball team to win a scholarship. There are scholarships for every type of student, and that includes scholarships for students that shine in their own unique way.
Sure, you may not be going to Harvard, playing Division 1 football or dancing down the halls of Julliard, but you’re just as talented and that deserves some recognition! So check out 10 scholarships for the everyday student – there’s something for you here!
Big Dig Scholarship
You don’t have to dig deep intellectually for the Big Dig Scholarship; you just have to dig deep creatively. Open to high school seniors, college freshmen and sophomores, the Big Dig Scholarship requires applicants to answer the following:
“In 200 years, one of your relatives is going to be digging in what is now your backyard. They are going to find something that you buried in 2012, and it is going to put any financial worries they have to rest. Your job today is to decide what to bury. Your goal is to find something that will have immense value in the future."
