5 College Scholarships You Didn’t Know Existed
After the anxious rush of applying for college, being admitted, and receiving your financial aid package, it’s easy to think that you’ve got all the college scholarships you can get. Not true! There are all kinds of national and international scholarships available to help you fund everything from tuition and books to studying abroad.
5. Florida Exclusive: Bright Futures
Finally some news about Florida that doesn’t involve alligators or cougars! For my fellow Floridians who are still in high school, Bright Futures awards college scholarship money to Florida residents to attend a university in Florida. Bright futures is based on GPA, volunteer hours, and ACT and/or SAT scores. There are two levels of awards – Florida Medallion Scholars and Florida Academic Scholars. FAS is a larger scholarship, but requires a higher GPA and test scores. FMS still requires academic achievement, but may be more attainable than FAS. The guidelines are clearly listed in the Bright Futures Student Handbook.
4. Tall Clubs International
This is one of the weirder college scholarships out there. According to their website, “Tall Clubs International™ (TCI) is a social organization for tall adults! Our stated purpose is ‘to promote tall awareness among tall men and women, and in the community.’” If you’re a female above 5’10” or a male over 6’4”, you might be eligible to get a college scholarship for being tall. To apply, email the TCI and request an application between September 1, 2016 and February 1, 2017.
3. American Association of Candy Technologists’ John Kitt Memorial Scholarship
This college scholarship is for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in college with a demonstrated interest in “confectionary technology.” If you’ve got dreams of being Willy Wonka, this one is for you . The applicant must be majoring in food science, nutrition, biological science, or a similar major and have demonstrated interest in confectionary technology, including internships, research projects, and formal study.
2. CIA Undergraduate Scholarship Program
This is a scholarship for high school seniors and first and second year college students with financial need who want to work for the CIA. During summer work sessions, students will work in the DC Metropolitan Area in CIA scholar positions tailored to their major. If selected, workers receive an annual salary, a benefits package including health and life insurance, and retirement; and up to $18,000 per calendar year for tuition, mandatory fees, and books. Applications for this program are accepted from April 1 – September 23.
1. “Baby Fulbright”
The real name of this college scholarship is “Summer Institutes for US Undergraduates,” but is nicknamed the “Baby Fulbright.” The scholarship—which covers transportation, housing, food, and tuition—offers U.S. undergraduate students to study at one of eight British universities. Each program has a different focus, from climate change to Shakespeare, and each program allocates time for students to experience the beauty of the UK.
