Two Too Seldomly-Used Scholarships


Aren't today's college students willing to make a few sacrifices to help pay for their education? Here are two shameful examples of available scholarship dollars going to waste.
At Vassar College, students who can prove they are descendants of benefactor, Calvin Huntington - or who are willing to change their middle name to Huntington - are eligible for a full scholarship. This scholarship has been awarded only twice in the past 25 years. Tuition at Vassar this year is $39,635 , plus another $9040 for room and board. Isn't that worth changing your middle name for? It's not as if you have to change your major to bagpipes or something. That would be a requirement for a seldom-sought scholarship at Carnegie Mellon University. This school offers the only bagpipe major in the United States and a $7000 a year scholarship to the student willing to pursue it. In the program's 16 year history, only six students have chosen the major. Three of those six ended up dropping it before graduation.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems
of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

I think what you said made a lot of sense. However, what about this?

suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something that grabbed people's
attention? I mean "Two Too Seldomly-Used Scholarships" is a little
boring. You should look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything've written.
Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.

Does managing a well-established website such as yours require a lot
of work? I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to
start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Thankyou!
