WeirdScholarships.net

From Pyper Barnes-Creater of weirdscholarships.net

"I am the creator of a website called WeirdScholarships.net. I started the site a couple years ago with the intention of making it easier for students to find scholarships they would have never heard of beforehand.

My website features thousands of small and unique scholarship opportunities. Most students forget about the smaller awards, but in many cases, these are the best opportunities for students. My site is dedicated to helping students find less competitive awards tailored to their personality, interests, and career goals."
