As part of my grad school application saga I have been investigating scholarships that I could apply for. After I determined that I was no longer eligible for the Duct Tape Prom Dress scholarship my Google search landed me at FastWeb.
One of the scholarship eligibility forms I had to fill out was a bizarre “Personal Attributes” checklist. Here is a selection of the more interesting boxes on the 43-item list. I assume there is some scholarship, somewhere that corresponds with each item. Check all that apply to you.
I’m sure I’ll be able to pay for school through a combination of loans and fellowships, but I can’t shake the feelings that I’d be in a better place if I were a 6’4” transgendered feminist vegetarian triplet from a mobile home park in a small town farming community who was affected by September 11. Well, a better place in financial aid terms at least.
