By tamara I love this time of year; the weather gets cooler, the leaves change color and there’s a feeling of fun in the air. It’s also the time of the year when everyone gets to be a kid again. Some people dress up, play pranks and act just plain silly. Halloween allows others to channel their inner ghouls and goblins, and for a while, lets them believe that magic does exist. For some, this feeling remains throughout the year. So, in honor of Halloween, let’s look at a few whacky scholarships that reward those who keep the spirit of Halloween alive year-round. Are you a fan of Star Trek? Planning to go to this year’s Halloween party as Spock, Captain Kirk or a Klingon? Well, if you live and breathe all things related to Star Trek, you may just win a scholarship for college too! The Kor Memorial Scholarship provides a $500 award to an international or U.S. undergraduate or graduate student that is completing a degree in language study (including Klingon). For those who have actually taken the additional step and joined Starfleet, the International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc., there is a $500 Starfleet Academy Scholarship available. Beam me up, Scotty! Star Trek not your thing? Maybe you visualize yourself as a real-life Ghostbuster instead. If so, then the Eileen J. Garrett Scholarship, which provides $3,000 for college, could be for YOU! Any international or U.S. undergraduate or graduate student who is pursuing a degree in parapsychology may apply for this award. You might want to refrain from adding any letters of reference from Gozer or the Gate Keeper though. And what would Halloween be without spooky illusions, haunted houses and elaborate costumes? If you consider yourself a bit of a magician or have the knack for creating awesome costumes, be sure to check into the Harry & Trudy Monti College Scholarship; this award provides funding for tuition and books to academically gifted magicians who attend college full-time and have financial need. Or check out the National Costumers Association National Fund Scholarship, which provides funding for students who are studying costuming or theatre in college. It would be nice if we could wave a magic wand and make your college tuition disappear, but only you have that power.
