Find Funny Scholarships

Funny Scholarships That Are No Joke

Tomorrow is April Fools’ Day, which kicks off National Humor Month. We have no idea why April is so comical, but hey…who are we to complain? We all could use a little more laughter in our lives. One thing that is no laughing matter, however, is the cost of a college degree. It can get downright expensive to pay for tuition, books, housing, and all those college fees. That’s why it’s so important to take time each month to apply for scholarships. Sometimes it may seem a bit boring when you have to answer those dry and dull essay prompts over and over again.  But thankfully, not all scholarship programs are so bland. In fact, we’ve come across a few funny scholarships that will keep even the most overworked and sleep-deprived students engaged and laughing. Take a look.

Unique Talent Day

7 Scholarships for Your Unique Talents

Did you know that November 24 is ‘Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day?’ We all have something that makes us special; some of us can remember long sequences of numbers (not me) or eat spaghetti with our toes (again, not me!). And then, there are those who have some truly unique talents, such as playing an instrument or designing clothes, or even being able to identify all the stars in the sky. The point is, now is the time to embrace those things that set you apart from everyone else and celebrate your special qualities.

America's Weirdest Scholarship

The Weirdest Scholarship in America

Every year, there are tons of posts about weird scholarships. There’s the Stuck at Prom Scholarship where students make their outfits from Duck Tape®, and let’s not forget the duck calling scholarship, which has been mentioned so many times it’s just not weird anymore. Of course, no list is ever complete without adding the Kor Memorial Scholarship, simply because those who speak Klingon can use their talent to win it, although it’s not the only language eligible for the award. Last year, ScholarshipExperts.com jumped into the fray with the Zombie Apocalypse and Flavor of the Month scholarships. If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, the zombie scholarship was made for you. Of course, I personally love the Flavor of Month because I have an excuse to sample ice cream. I haven’t found anything called ‘A Hot Mess’ yet, so my search continues. Now, ScholarshipExperts.com has done it again and launched a totally new scholarship that may just be the weirdest award I have ever seen.

10 Truly Weird Scholarships

Every year, someone publishes a list of weird or wacky scholarships, but it always seems like the same scholarships are listed year after year. The list is bound to include the Kor Memorial Scholarship (popular with those who speak Klingon), the Stuck at Prom Scholarship (Duck Tape) and, of course, the infamous duck calling scholarship (otherwise known as the Chick and Sophie Major Memorial Duck Calling Contest). In fact, these so-called wacky scholarships have become so well-known that they no longer qualify as ‘weird’ in my book. So, we scoured the Web looking for something truly new and unique; we wanted to find programs that require an unusual hobby, career or characteristic to add to our annual list. Here are the programs made our Truly Weird Scholarships List.

1. Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship

There’s been so much media attention surrounding Zombies that not even a statement from the CDC has been able to assuage the masses.  Continue Reading…
