How to Find Scholarships

Cameron Huddleston

Looking for a scholarship to help cover the college tuition bill this fall? If you can speak Klingon, are left handed or are willing to go to prom wearing nothing but duct tape, you're in luck. There are plenty wacky scholarships, and PersonalFinanceAnalyst highlights five of them.

It just goes to show there is free money out there for college -- and you don't have to be valedictorian or captain of the football team to get it. The average private scholarship is about $2,000. See Free Money for College for tips on where to look and how to apply.

If you're heading off to graduate school this fall, consider these ways to cover the bills.
