It is the weird and wacky things in life that people find interesting. These are the things that people devote their time to. In contrast, something serious like preparing for college can cause people to procrastinate, and sometimes lose great opportunities.

Some scholarship providers are aware of this problem, and have done their best to fix it by creating some very unprecedented scholarship opportunities.

The Cutest Prom Couple Scholarship is a scholarship that only requires you to have an instagram and a cute date. According to the scholarship’s sponsor, Prom Guide Magazine, “The winner will receive $500.”

The Doodle 4 Google Scholarship is directed more at the creative crowd. A Google Doodle is the icon on the Google Home Screen that changes daily. According to collegexpress.com, “[The] applicant must…[create] a Doodle based on the theme ‘If you could invent one thing to make the world a better place…’” The winner of this scholarship earns $30,000 as well as a $50,000 grant to their school.

Other students are more attracted to science fiction. Unigo sponsors a zombie apocalypse scholarship for these students. According to collegexpress.com, “[The applicant should write] a 250 word or less essay on the following topic: Imagine your high school… has been overrun with zombies. Your Math [teacher] , the cafeteria ladies, and your best friend have all joined the walking dead…[Make] a plan to avoid the zombies, including where you would hide and the top 5 things you would bring with you to stay alive.”

Whatever the passion or talent, there is a weird and entertaining scholarship to match. The only thing left to do is grab the opportunity.
