You may be wondering, “what is the difference between a weird grant and a weird scholarship.” Well, we will be honest with you and tell you that there isn’t too much difference between the two. Really, weird grants is just another way to refer to weird scholarships. Now, we have already created a page on weird scholarships. So, why would we want to create a page that essentially talks about the same thing? As stated above, weird grants and weird scholarships are used interchangeably to describe each other. So, it only make sense for us to include a page on weird grants in case someone doesn’t know this fact.
What Is A Weird Grant?
For those of you who are searching for college scholarships or grants you may want to turn your attention to the weird scholarship offerings. This is due to a number of reasons. Weird grants are notoriously uncompetitive because they don’t get a fair shake. They aren’t looked at as “legitimate” when they clearly are. This means a lot of your peers pass up on them when they could be giving themselves an opportunity to win scholarship money. Weird grants are also sometimes very fun to apply for. This is made apparent when you are talking about a scholarship that allows you to make an entire prom dress out of nothing but duck brand tape. What scholarship is funner than that?
More Weird Grants
- National Potato Council Scholarship– Probably our favorite scholarship to talk about because it just baffles our mind that a scholarship could be given based on an interest in potatoes. However, that is exactly what this scholarship allows you to do. Win $5,000 by showing an interest in agribusiness.
- Association Of The Van Valkenburg Family– What the heck does this have to do with weird grants? Well, if you are a descendent of the Valkenburg line then you are eligible for a $1,000 scholarship. How weird…
- Writers Of The Future Scholarship– The L. Ron Hubbard foundation is giving out scholarships for people who show a creative side and have an interest in science fiction writing. For writers and illustrators.
- National Rifle Association– Perhaps the most bizarre thing about this scholarship is that all you have to do is get accepted into the NRA youth program and apply for one of the many scholarships they are handing out. You don’t even have to pick up a gun and shoot.
