Scholarship Types & Details:
College scholarships aren’t just for people with high GPAs and great SAT scores. Some scholarship awarding organizations have decided to buck the trend of rewarding academic achievement, and instead offer scholarships based on unique talents, unorthodox interests, creativity, or just unusual circumstances. These scholarships range from simply unique, to quirky, to downright bizarre, but all of them are worth applying for if you meet the requirements, because any scholarships you get now will decrease your college payments in the long term.
The Gertrude J. Deppen Scholarship Fund
If sports aren’t your thing, then pay attention. Bucknell University’s Gertrude J. Deppen Scholarship Fund is ideal for you! This fund, which was established in 1990, provides two scholarships per year to Bucknell University students who do not compete in severe sporting events. (I’m presuming non-strenuous contests are still acceptable?) You must also be a resident of Mount Carmel, California (hmm, Californians who don’t like to sweat) and abstain from the use of cigarettes, alcohol, and recreational drugs on a regular basis.
