If you are a lefty, like Ned Flanders (Roughly 10 percent of the population is) you are in luck because there are actually scholarships solely for those college bound students that are left handed. DOH! The left handed scholarships out there seem to be few and far between, but for any college student a scholarship that could help with expenses is something worth considering. Still interested? Read below for even more detail on these left handed scholarships

Beckley Scholarship

The biggest, and currently only, left handed scholarship that is out there is called the Frederick and Mary F Beckley Scholarship for left handed students attending Juniata College in Huntington, Pennsylvania. This scholarship is usually between $1,000 to $1,500 a year and is given to sophomores, juniors and seniors that attend Juniata College. This scholarship has benefited over 40 students and will benefit many more to come... perhaps even Flanders! To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must be left handed and must demonstrate academic success along with financial need.

Specific Scholarships

Other left handed scholarships are those that are not specifically for those who are left handed, but are there for those hobbies, sports and other activities that left handed students enjoy and excel at. Sports scholarships are there for athletes that want to play sports in college and can range from a couple hundred dollars to a full ride. There are also scholarships just for high school seniors, women, for specific majors or careers, and for those who are artistic. Many local businesses provide scholarships for kids in the community including the place that you or your parents are employed at. Employers can offer scholarships for children of employees, employees or even offer to help pay for college expenses if it is benefiting their employees to help them in their career. The amount of scholarships available can be extremely overwhelming, so it is important to ask for help. The school counselor or potential college institution are a great start to get started in applying for specific scholarships. There are also hundreds of websites that have thousands of scholarships that you can apply for as well. Just be aware that there are scams that try to offer scholarships, so do your research before applying or accepting anything.

FAFSA

Although FAFSA is not solely for those left handed students who are planning or already going to college, it is a huge part of the financial aid process. This application is required by almost all colleges and is free to apply for. The process takes into consideration your age, income, dependency, military status and other various factors to determine how much financial aid you qualify for. The college that you are attending or are planning to attend will customize a financial aid package based on the information from FAFSA that includes grants, scholarships and student and/or parent loans. This is one of the first steps in applying for and searching for financial aid and will be how much of the college funding will be figured out.

Pell Grants

Pell grants are based on the financial need of a student and do not need to be repaid. These grants take into consideration the future income of the student or their parents, cost of the university or college and the student's enrollment status in the institution, whether full time or part time. The maximum amount a student can receive from Pell Grant is $5,500 and cannot receive a Pell Grant from more than one school at a time and Pell Grants are figured by filling out the FAFSA. There are many left handed scholarships out there, students just have to have an open mind and look outside of the box for some of them. Find out what interests you and what you excel at, and there will be a scholarship worth applying for. Even though a couple hundred dollars may not seem like much, a little goes a long ways in helping with the expenses incurred during college.

Academic Scholarship

Almost all universities and colleges have academic scholarships for students who excel in the classroom or have outstanding ACT/SAT scores. Many of these scholarships are awarded by the specific college that the student is planning/currently attending but there are also private scholarships that are based on academics. These scholarships can range from a couple hundred dollars to a full ride, which will cover all costs associated with attending the certain college/university. Typically students will have to apply to the college to know if and how much they will get for an academic scholarship. For private scholarships, students will need to apply for these individually as they find them.
