Fat Acceptance and Anti-Sports Scholarships

The Gertrude J. Deppen Scholarship Fund
(Bucknell University)

Scholarship Name: The Gertrude J. Deppen Scholarship Fund
Description: If sports are so not your thing, then listen up. The Gertrude J. Deppen Scholarship Fund at Bucknell University is perfect for you! Established in 1990, this fund gives two scholarships a year to Bucknell U students who do not participate in strenuous athletic competitions. (I’m guessing non-strenuous competitions would still be okay?) You also have to hail from Mount Carmel, California (hmm, Californians who don’t like to sweat) and disavow the habitual use of tobacco, alcohol and recreational drugs.
