This is the world’s only scholarship for natural redheads. We redheads are a group of people who in some way have had their looks influence their lives. This scholarship celebrates the intelligence and creativity of those students, hoping to foster the higher education goals of those copper headed individuals. As members of such a small group, we hope this scholarship will help create role models.

Application For Scholarship
- Two photos of yourself for proof of your hair color. One from when you were a child, one from present day.
- High School transcript. Can be a photocopy. I don’t need you to go through your Guidance Counselors. However, must be as up to date as possible.
- If you know what school you are going to, please include that as well.
- For the third part of the Scholarship, it is up to you. Create something that represents what it means to be Redhead. This can be anything from an academic essay to a drawing or youtube video. Play to your strengths. It can be a funny story or an experience that was caused by being a Redhead. The more creative the better, but there is no wrong answer.
