It’s finally time to narrow down your college choices. As exciting as that is, there is one little buzzkill: money. After all, college is very expensive! Unlike loans, which need to be repaid, scholarships give you a little extra money to put towards your tuition that you don’t need to pay back later. However, applying for scholarships doesn’t have to be tedious; there are some crazy and cool scholarships out there available for you! Check out these unique scholarships you should apply for.

1. Stuck at Prom Scholarship Contest

Would you believe us if we said you could design a prom dress out of duct tape and win a scholarship? Weirdly enough, you can! All it takes is using Duck Brand duct tape to create your own dress and submitting a picture in your application. Think outside of the box; you win based on creativity and style!

Requirement: You must be a legal resident of the United States or Canada and sign a release form.

2. American Fire Sprinkler Association Scholarship Program

Don’t have the time to write another college essay? You’re in luck, because for this scholarship, you just have to read an essay about fire safety.
