College Scholarships for The Tall and The Small
Everyone knows that going to college can be pretty expensive, but did you know that there are some pretty unusual scholarships out there that you can apply for?
We have come across another one that you can apply for, but like most of the others there is a catch. How tall are you? This scholarship (and thus the money) can only be applied for if you are female and at least 5'10 or male and at lease 6'2. Discriminatory? Hear us out. The $1000 scholarship is being given out by the Tall Clubs International Foundation.
It is just what it sounds like. 1992 Kae Sumner Einfeldt had put together this organization to promote causes that benefit tall people. One of the ways this not-for-profit gives back is through this scholarship program.
Interested? Here are a few of the requirements from their website:
- You must be entering your first year of college in the fall of 2021.
- •You must include your city and state in your inquiry.
- •Be sure to include the word "Scholarship" in the subject line of your email.
("No subject" or a simple "Hello" can not be opened—too many viruses.)
- You may request an application from September 1, 2020 thru February 1, 2021.
The due date for the applications is March 1, 2021.
- All other instructions will be included in the application.
