    Interesting Scholarships

    We all know about different scholarships. There are sport scholarships and those academic scholarships we all hope to achieve. But here are some scholarships you may not know about.

    Tall Club International Scholarship
    Tall Club International’s (TCI) purpose is to “promote tall awareness among tall men and women, and in the community.” The TCI will give a scholarship of $1,000 to men at least 6’2” and women 5’10” (candidates must be under 21 and plan to attend college in the fall).

    Little People of America Scholarship
    In sharp contrast to the TCI, the Little People of America (LPA) provides for the vertically challenged people of society. With members at a maximum of 4’10”, the TCI offers $250 to $1000 to people diagnosed with a form of dwarfism and members of TCI with direct family members who are dwarfs.

    Duck Brand Duct Tape Stuck at Prom Contest
    Duct tape is famous for its versatility, but can it help get you into college? The Duck Brand Duct Tape Stuck at Prom Contest gives out scholarships up to $3,000 to a couple attending their high school prom wearing an outfit entirely composed of duct tape (and $3,000 to the school). The entry must provide a color picture of the attendees and will be based on the originality, creativity, and color of the design.

    Vegetarian Resource Group
    The non-profit organization Vegetarian Resource Group is giving out scholarships to graduating U.S. high school students who promote vegetarianism in their high school or community. With the benefit of an anonymous donation, the group has awarded two $5,000 scholarships a year. Entries for classes of spring 2010 must apply by February 20 2010.
