Chances are if you are a student graduating from high school then you are going to be looking for a scholarship. This is very normal for a high school senior. Maybe your high school recommended that you go online and perform a scholarship search. Perhaps they gave you a list of scholarships and grants to apply for. It is always nice to have a plan laid out completely for you so all you have to do is follow it. However, what happens if we told you that the plan that your high school laid out for a scholarship is not very realistic? Would you be upset or would you be wondering what a realistic plan is?

Luckily, there are a set of scholarships for high school seniors that aren’t competitive and aren’t too hard to apply for. So, what are these elusive scholarships? Simple, they are odd scholarships for high school seniors.
