Heading off to college and looking for a student grant is a serious business but there are some weird scholarships out there that, although they may seem stupid, are worth a lot of money.
Among the millions of possible college grants are some that most people wouldn’t imagine exist. There is a duct tape scholarship. Just wear nothing but duct tape to your high school prom and you are in with a chance. Then there are the lefties. Students who write with their left hand are eligible for a special left handed college grant.
Tall people can claim a scholarship if they are over 6’11” for men or 5’10” for women. Not to be out done, there is also a short people’s college grant.
If you are thinking of studying languages or linguistics then you may be able to claim $500 from The Klingon Language Institute. It really exists and the good news is you don’t even have to be fluent in speaking Klingon. There is more for Star Trek fans. There are scholarships for would be writers and even a medical one from the Star fleet Academy although I do not believe there is one for having long pointed ears.
Baking cakes, apple pie or being able to call ducks all carry valuable college grants. You can get free education at Texas A&M University if your surname is Scarpinato. If you like shooting things and read up on the Bill of Rights, the National Rifle Association may pay for your education.
