Vegetarian scholarship- among others

I have found yet more scholarships for those that want to take the time and could use the extra money- not every student will get a full ride to college- In fact less than 20% will get scholarships to cover tuition and books- but We can be that 20%!

Do you have a vegetarian young person? There are 2 scholarships for $5,000 awarded for those that promote and practice this lifestyle. My daughter is a practicing vegetarian- she has a few years to keep it up for this scholarship...

Scholarship for a student interested in confectionary study- Requires those interested to be studying in the sciences or food areas at a 4 year college

The National Make It Yourself with Wool (NMIYWW) competition awards $2,000 and $1,000scholarships for knitting wool garments. Winners are selected based on the appropriateness to the contestant's lifestyle, coordination of fabric/yarn with garment style and design, contestant's presentation, and creativity.

Far out Scholarships

I have decided to seek out further funding for my daughters education. While my oldest wants to teach- the youngest wants to possibly do research- maybe find the cure for cancer? This will take more than just four years of college.

Yesterday she(youngest) took the PLAN- a pre ACT test. The oldest is waiting on her ACT scores. So I shall post some of my findings as I continue my quest for money. Here are a few so far

Truly, it’s not a quack. The Chick and Sophie Major Memorial Duck Calling Contest awards $1,500 to the high school student who can call ducks with flare. Those who aren’t top-notch callers but still have some talent may qualify for the other prizes. The first runner-up receives $500, the second $300 and the third $200 in scholarship money. Contestants have 90 seconds to show the judges what they’re made of. Don’t be a lame duck.

This site offers scholarships for those that want to study the wine and grape industry.

For those interested in aquatic entomology: This scholarship is for those interested in research within the aquatics field.

I also have found several specific to my own childs school- one thru comcast, and it requires leadership potential and financial need.

Good luck
