You'll get a kick (and hopefully some funds to pay for college) out of these 15+ amusing scholarships. Bonus: Marvel a few wacky internships too, while you're at it.
Unique, Silly & Fun Scholarships
Weird. Wacky. Outlandish. Some of the most ridiculous things in life are what you take notice of, and can be a lot of fun. The same goes with scholarships. Some of the best weird scholarships are also some of the silliest, goofy, oddball awards that often get a "I can get an award for what?!" type of reaction. This is exactly why they’re worth celebrating. Here are some of Fastweb’s all-time favorite, take-notice scholarships. These fall under the silly, outlandish and how’d-they-come-up-with-that? category scholarship opportunities that may make you think or, perhaps, look twice. They make you wonder exactly who is applying for these weird scholarships and how on earth can you meet them? Poke fun all you want; when you have fewer student loans to pay back than your peers, these are in no sense foolish endeavors. Less student debt after graduation leads to more fun later in life. At the end of the day, a scholarship is a scholarship! And these are nothing short of awesome. You never know, one of the following awards could be perfect for you! If so, you are our hero.
