We’ve got some great opps for your today — big and small. You’ve got a whole weekend ahead of you, so why not sit down, fill out a few applications and whip up a couple of essays. Who couldn’t use several thousand dollars more for college?
The OP Loftbed Company is awarding a $500 scholarship to the student who answers their questions best. Unlike many other scholarships, OP doesn’t discriminate based on your GPA, involvement in the community, or even your writing skills. They just want to read original, creative answers to the following questions (these may vary from year to year):
- What personal characteristics are most important to you in a Presidential candidate and why?
- Some psychologists say all families are dysfunction to a degree. What makes your family dysfunctional?
- If you could be a living advertisement for any product or company, what product or company would you choose?
- Nike has “Just Do It.” Larry the Cable Guys has, “Git-R-Done!” What is your life motto?
Sounds like fun, right? The kitty isn’t huge, but $500 will buy a semester’s worth of books (or more if you buy second hand!) The application must be mailed on time (see website for deadline).
2. SGNA RN General Education Scholarship: $2,500
