Say what you want, but unusual scholarships are never dull. They are for the most daring and bold, but they can pay off huge in the long run if done right…more after the jump
This week we are promoting one of the funniest and most unusual scholarships out there: The Stuck At Prom Scholarship Contest, sponsored by Duck Brand Duct Tape.
Not for the faint of heart, it does offer two benefits besides the scholarships: first, it is a great way to set yourself apart in any essay, contest, or job interview in the future. it not only shows you can take on a team based project and compete, but that you a bold and willing to step outside your comfort zone. Second, it offers you an opportunity to compete for an award that few are willing to try, and therefore competition is not as numerically high as normal. but don’t rest on your laurels; research past winners and see what set them apart from others. If you are a parent of a high schooler or a student in high school, don’t be afraid to try this one out. You may find your better having tried it in the long run.
