With next school year already on the horizon, StudySoup’s got some great advice!

It’s been a great semester so far. While your attentions are rightfully focused on final exams ahead, it’s never too early to start prepping for the next school year. Many of you probably have experience with taking out loans and applying for financial aid. But what about scholarships? 

We all know they’re out there, but how many of us have actually spent the time to apply for a scholarship? Students often don’t know which scholarships are available to them, or don’t know how to access the required information. But they’re missing out on a huge opportunity – scholarships don’t have to be paid back, after all!

There’s a scholarship out there for everyone, and we mean everyone! We’ve included 5 of the wildest scholarships we could find, but for any 3D designers out there, we’ve also included information for a $1000 scholarship from our partners at Pinshape. Here is the link to apply: https://pinshape.com/scholarship

5 Weirdest Scholarships


1. Duck Brand Duct Tape Stuck on Prom Contest

The author of this article has a personal friend who wore a duct tape suit to class in high school. If only he had known about this scholarship!

Think of it this way: If you go to prom in a duct tape suit, they’ll pay you $3000 for the free marketing. That’s $1000 an hour for a 3-hour prom! If you can find another job that pays $1000 per hour, please let us know. 🙂

2. National Marbles Tournament Scholarship

Remember that game you used to play on the playground? That one where you used the big marbles to knock the little marbles out of the circle? Well neither do I, because I didn’t grow up in the 50’s. Had to look it up.

But if somehow, you’ve managed to keep this archaic game alive, we’ve found $1000 to $2000 in free money for ya. What’s the catch? Must be between 8 and 14 years of age.

3. Zolp Scholarship

Is your last name Zolp? Do you practice the Catholic faith? Well congratulations, we’ve found an incredibly specific scholarship just for you!

We’re serious – the only two requirements are that your last name is Zolp and that you are a Catholic. Come-up, Aisle Z!

4. Carnegie Mellon University Bagpipe Scholarship

All those hailing from the Scottish Moors, or those who just love wearing awesome kits should really have a leg up on this one. And if you don’t, get to practicing. It’ll really pay off!

5. Michigan Llama Association (MLA)

Just have to be a member, or the child of a member, of the MLA. ‘Nuff said.
