Getting into college is difficult-- almost everybody knows that. It requires preparation, mentally, physically, and emotionally, as well as ample financial support. But college, as everyone knows, is your best ticket to a wider range of opportunities for yourself and your family. Hence, despite the challenge that stands in the way, you will have to strive hard enough to obtain that highly coveted college diploma.

Fortunately, there are certain forms of financial aides that can help students, such as yourself, get into college and finish your college education without having to spend a single cent coming from your own pocket. You might have heard of academic and sports scholarships, but if you find them difficult to apply for, don't fret-- there are ridiculously easy scholarships which you can apply for and they don't even involve an entrance exam nor will the sponsors look over your academic standing in your previous school.

This might sound like an episode from Ripley's Believe it or Not, but yes, there are scholarships for the surprisingly tall people and they will not involve a basketball and a hoop. There is also a scholarship made especially for those who can predict the future, as well as a scholarship program named after Klingon, the intergalactic language popularized by every geek's favorite, Star Trek.

If you just can't get into a scholarship program with seemingly "normal" qualification requirements, you should try these easy scholarships, which are, at the same time ridiculously easy to apply for. These are very easy scholarships to get, but just like their academically-dependent scholarship counterparts, these scholarships also require each and every one of its applicants to undergo a process in order to qualify for a cash prize intended for one's tuition.

Below are 5 easy scholarships to get without entrance exams or the involvement of any document that shows your academic standing:


  1. Scholarships for potato-lovers: Potato Industry Scholarship. The Potato Industry (yes, there is such a thing), wants you to show your love for baked potatoes, fried potatoes, sliced potatoes, or generally, just potatoes. If you are obsessed with potatoes and if you are considering taking up a course that deals with growing and harvesting potatoes, then you are eligible for a $2, 000 award under the Potato Industry Scholarship.

  2. Scholarships for linguists: The Klingon Language Institute Scholarship. Whether you are interested to learn French, Spanish, Gibberish, and even Klingon, the Klingon Language Institute is for you. This scholarship invites all students who love to learn foreign languages. Lucky recipients get $500 dollars each year as financial support.

  3. Scholarships for tall people: Tall Clubs International Scholarship. The Tall Clubs International Scholarship program wants to know "what being tall means to you." Got any ideas? Write them down in an essay format and you might just win $1, 000.

  4. Scholarships for modern-day oracles: Excellence in Predicting the Future Award. What's the winning combination in the lottery? What is going to happen 3 days from now? How about the economy-- what do you think is going to happen to it a few months from now? The Excellence in Predicting the Future Award encourages high school students to take up economics in college. By simply telling them your prediction for the community, you might be the lucky recipient of this award.

  5. Scholarships for Aspiring Astronauts: SPAACSE. The SPAACSE wants you to write about space travel-- without leaving the Earth! Simply write an essay about space travel and you could win the $1, 000 dollar scholarship award.


You might wonder why these scholarships are very easy to apply for. The answer is quite simple: since they cater to a specific field and group of students, the sponsors are trying to help raise awareness and invite more people to become part of these unique industries. One way to do so is by showing the community that support is strong in these fields.

These may be easy scholarships to get but you will be competing with several other students who want to avail of their generous cash awards. You will not be competing with thousands of students but then again, you will have to impress the sponsors if you want to secure your chances of winning these awards. More importantly, opportunities like these don't come along often, so don't waste time and do your best to deliver your finest essays if you wish to become a recipient.
