  Unusual Scholarships

Another option is to do a Google search for the word "scholarship" together with a word that describes you or one of your interests. For example, search for "cooking scholarship," "skateboarding scholarship," or “Scholarships for average students.”

After you have exhausted those, look at national scholarship search engines. 

Some scholarship search engines will request your name and address in order to better serve you. However, your information may then be sold to companies marketing a wide array of services and products to college students.

Remember to email us if you are awarded any scholarships using these search engines! Good luck!
