“Why so serious?

Scholarships can be fun! Take a break from the boring application routine and make us laugh. That’s right; we want a real LOL moment.

Make Me Laugh is a fun scholarship that lets you cut loose and lighten things up. Looking for a scholarship for comedians? Now is your chance to show us your funny bone. Perhaps you always have an embarrassing – but funny – story to share. Great! We’ll promise to laugh with you, not at you.

The point is that not all scholarships have to be serious. Relax and have fun! The only thing serious about the Make Me Laugh Scholarship is the money you could win towards your college education. With $1,500 – you could be laughing your way to the bank!

Applicants must:

  • Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application
  • Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia
  • Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2023) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education

Submit an online written response to the question:

 “OMG… finding and applying for scholarships is serious business, but it’s time to lighten things up a little. We don’t want to know why you deserve $1,500 or how great your grades are, we simply want to LOL. Describe an incident in your life, funny or embarrassing (fact or fiction), and make us laugh!” (250 words or less)

The Make Me Laugh Scholarship winner will be notified by email or phone on or around November 30, 2017.”

You must complete a scholarship profile at Unigo.com (takes about 15-45 minutes) and answer the question above.

SKIP THE ADS! (Some of the ads are legitimate, but sadly I can’t vouch for them all. Avoid the single mom or single dad scholarships–I and a few other students have received calls, and some of the operators are not scrupulous, trying to pressure students in pursuing degrees at for-profit colleges and to take on heavy student loans.)

Calculate What the Scholarship is Worth to You

Think of looking for scholarships as a part time job.

Let’s say you work in retail and make about $9 an hour.

If you win one of the $1,000 scholarships above, then $1,000/$9 = 111.12, which means you would have to work about 111 hours at $9 an hour to earn $999.

1 or 2 hours of work to equal a potential $1,000.

It is better to major in scholarship money rather than college debt. Make a choice, and go for it!
