Luckily, the team here at Yes I Know That has put together a list of the scholarships that we have found both interesting and funny. So, we present you with our choices for the top 5 hilarious scholarships that are guaranteed to make you laugh!
1. Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship
Have you ever wondered what you would do if the zombie apocalypse hit? If so, then you definitely have a chance to win $1,000. All you have to do is put together a survival plan. Here is the catch though, you are only allowed to bring 5 items with you and you have to locate a place to stay where you will wait out the apocalypse. If you have what it takes to survive the zombie threat then take advantage of this scholarship!

2. Red Haired Scholarship
This one is pretty simple, if you have red hair (naturally) then you are eligible to apply for the redheaded scholarship. The grant itself isn’t worth a whole lot in terms of money but $250 can go a long ways in college so it is worth applying for!

3. Prom Dress Scholarship
This one isn’t really hilarious is it just pretty darn creative. Here is the deal, the Duck Brand Duct Tape holds a contest every year for $5,000.
