FREDERICK AND MARY F. BECKLEY SCHOLARSHIP
This “lefty” scholarship is awarded each year to
sophomores, juniors, and seniors attending Juniata
College in Huntingdon, PA. We call it “lefty” because to
qualify, you must be left handed; show financial
need; and have a good GPA.
NATIONAL BEEF AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
The National Beef Ambassador Program works with youth
in states across the country. These Beef Ambassadors will
educate consumers in their respective areas about beef

adults are chosen to represent the National Beef
Ambassador Team and educate consumers on a
national level through a competition.
TALL CLUBS INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
All you need to qualify for this scholarship is to be at least
6’2” if you’re a male and at least 5’10” if you’re a female,
then write an essay entitled “What Being Tall Means to Me.”
Yep, that’s all; we promise!
VAN VALKENBURG MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
To win this scholarship you have to be a descendant
through birth or legal adoption of Lambert and
Annetje Van Valkenburg. Nothing else, that’s it. Now who
exactly Lambert and Annetje are we don’t know but we’re
pretty sure you do if you’re a descendant of them.
SOPHIE MAJOR MEMORIAL DUCK CALLING
This forty year old scholarship is in memory of Chick and
Sophie Major, two “legendary” champion duck callers from

prepared to win some serious money.
JIF MOST CREATIVE SANDWICH CONTEST SCHOLARSHIP
Have a little chef at home between ages six and twelve?
He or she may be able to turn a talent into a college scholarship,
thanks to the Jif Most Creative Sandwich Contest. Using a
Jif peanut butter or Jif hazelnut spread product, contestants
have to create a sandwich that will be judged on creativity,
taste, visual appeal and ease of preparation.
THE BILLY BARTY FOUNDATION
This scholarship is awarded to students who are very short
(under 4’10”) and have proof of dwarfism. That makes the
Billy Barty Foundation one of the most well-known
organizations around the world advocating for
individuals with dwarfism.
ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE SCHOLARSHIP
The Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship gives students the
opportunity to be creative with guess what? zombies. This
application asks students to plan ahead for an apocalypse

imaginations who are interested in sci-fi and scare culture.
