Types of College Scholarships

Copyright (c) 2012 Alex Yew

Before you start applying for financial aid in order to return to college you may want to consider looking for different types of scholarships that are out there. I can guarantee you that there will be more than you have ever imagined and you may be eligible for some of them. It will be best to know what types of scholarships are out there to see if you may be able to apply for any of them or not.

First off, there are going to be academic scholarships. Some individuals will call these merit scholarships. Many times you will need to have grades that placed you in the top five percent of the graduating class when you graduated if you would like to get one of these scholarships. While you may not have been able to do this you should not be upset or overwhelmed because you may still be able to get one of these scholarships. In fact, there are some of them that will only require you to have a certain score on your ACT or you SAT test. So, make sure that you are taking these and you are prepared when you take them.

Can you believe that there are also acting scholarships? Well, there are and you might be able to get one of these if you were into performing arts when you were in school. These scholarships can go a few different ways. In some cases they will be awarded to individuals that want to go to a certain college. Others are going to be given to students from certain locations. Finally, there are some of these scholarships that will only be given to those potential students that are fulfilling the missions that the organization has set. As you can see, it will be very important to spend a great deal of time paying attention to how these scholarships will work.

There are even Celebrity Scholarships. Yes, that is right. If you are interested in a certain school, a certain area of study or you are even willing to attend the celebrity’s college then you may be able to get one of these. You might be wondering what scholarships these might include. You can always start by looking at the Gates Millennium Scholars Program, Michael Jackson and Rhythm Nation Scholarships or even the Seinfeld Scholarship Program. These really do exist and they are worth looking into.

Being disabled should not be a factor that could keep you from going to college. You may be able to get your hands on a great deal of free scholarship money if you just know where you should be looking. Some of these scholarships are going to be given to individuals that are suffering from physical and even sensory disabilities so that they can learn skills necessary to help them gain technical expertise. Yet, there are some other disability scholarships that are for students who may not be disabled themselves but they have parents that are disabled.

Are you interested in finding a scholarship that will give you a full ride to college rather than simply paying a few thousand dollars each semester or each year? If you are thinking that you might like to have a degree in agriculture then you are going to want to apply for the USDA/1890 National Scholars Program. If you get this scholarship then you will have everything paid for and you are not going to need to worry about any student loan repayments. The Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship is another great one to apply for because it will be covering your room and board as well. But, you will have certain requirements for this scholarship such as the fact that you must have been a caddie for a WGA affiliated course for at least two year.

It is easy to see that there are many ways that you can get your college education paid for if you are interested in searching. You may find a lot more out there than you ever expected and you may end up getting a really nice education for nothing. You are not losing anything by applying so there is no reason not to.

DIY Hatching Chick Deviled Eggs For Easter | Get the Dish

These DIY hatching chick deviled eggs for Easter are the perfect dish to serve this spring, and once you watch this video, you’ll learn how easy they are to make. Just be careful, they’re so adorable, everyone is going to want one of their own!

Hatching Chick Deviled Eggs
From She Knows


6 hard-boiled eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
Pinch of salt
1 carrot, julienned
12 black peppercorns


Peel the hard-boiled eggs. Place one egg on its side and cut a small slice off the bottom, flatter end of the egg. This will be the base of the chick. Be sure not to cut into the yolk. Then cut about 1/2 to 3/4 inch off the top of the egg. This is going to be the top of your chick. You will want to cut through the yolk of the egg. Repeat with the remaining eggs.

Scoop out all of the egg yolks and place in a bowl. Mix with mayonnaise, mustard, and salt. Place this filling in a piping bag and pipe into the base egg. Be sure the filling is about an inch taller than the top of the egg so you have room to make a face.
Place the other half of the egg white on top of each chick, pressing down on the back side so it looks like the chick is coming out of the egg.

Use a paring knife to cut the julienned carrot into pieces 1/2-inch long. Place 2 peppercorns and a piece of carrot into the yolk of each egg to make the face. You may find it easier to use tweezers for the smaller pieces.

Arrange eggs on your serving tray and then add feet by slipping the remaining slices of carrots under the body, 3 pieces for each foot. Serve cold.
