There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Chick and Sophie Major Memorial Scholarship. Recently, College Coach Robyn Stewart’s daughter figured out how to balance a spoon on her nose. “You will be great at parties,” Robyn told her, “now finish your dinner.” Unusual talents are another area to focus on when searching for scholarships, so what’s your party trick? For students who not only know the difference between a diving duck and a dabbling duck, but can imitate a merganser and a scoter as well, this duck calling contest may be right up your alley. For more information on this scholarship and how to apply, check out the College Coach Insider blog at
