Weird Scholarships Blog

January 14, 2016 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

This is a link to a scholarship blog put together by Pyper Barnes.  The following is the mission statement of the website:

My name is Pyper Barnes. I am the founder of Weird Scholarships. I am currently a Junior Finance major at the University of Alabama.

During the summer after my freshman year, I started to think that there may be alternatives to student loans. I started googling around in hopes of finding scholarships to help me pay for my tuition at Alabama. After a couple weeks of googling, I put together a pretty long spreadsheet of scholarship opportunities. After a summer of scholarship applications, I successfully acquired $25,000 worth of scholarships funds from a variety of sources. No more student loans for me!

I created Weird Scholarships to share my catalog of scholarships with other students.
