Are you tired of working on those long scholarship applications that require you to list every activity you have participated in since you started high school? What about writing those boring scholarship essays where you have to explain why you deserve the award or who you are going to be in ten years? Well, you’re in luck. Today is No-Brainer Day, which means you get to relax and put very little thought into everything you do — including filling out scholarship applications! We know it may seem as though every scholarship, regardless of the amount of money, requires a ton of work, but there are actually quite a few easy scholarships with simple applications that are fun and painless. Don’t believe us? Check out this list of scholarships that are total no-brainers.

2. $1,000 Cappex Monthly Scholarship

3. $5,000 Course Hero Scholarship

4. $5,000 VIP Voice Scholarship

6. Unigo $10K Scholarship

If you are 13 or older, apply to win our $10,000 scholarship. Yes, it requires a 250 word or less essay, but for $10,000, who’s complaining? 

7. Unigo Monthly Scholarships

Think you know how to survive a zombie apocalypse? Do you enjoy eating ice cream? Can you tell a great joke? If you answered yes to any of these questions, check out our monthly scholarships! Awards range in value from $1,500 to $5,000, and all are fun and easy to enter! A new winner is selected every month.

Keep in mind that many students are looking for these simple scholarships, so the competition may be a little higher than normal, but that doesn’t mean you should blow them off. Just be sure to spend some time on local scholarship programs and those that may be a little more restrictive, as your chances of winning will increase. One thing is for certain, you can’t win if you don’t apply.
