45 of the Weirdest College Scholarships

I love that the only way you can qualify for the Van Valkenburg Memorial Scholarship – is if you're a direct descendant by birth or adoption. Why even have the scholarship? Other scholarships may be easier to qualify for -IF you know about the opportunity! Here are a few examples:
9. Sophie Major Memorial Duck Calling Contest – If you love ducks season you may be eligible for $2,000 in scholarships. So get your favorite duck call and get prepared to win some money!

12. The Billy Barty Foundation – This scholarship is awarded to students who are short in stature – under 4’ 10” – and have proof of dwarfism.

33. Carnegie Mellon University Bagpipe Scholarship – This highly uncompetitive scholarship offers $7,000 yearly to bagpipe major students.
