Are there scholarships available based on my name?

Name Based Scholarships

Bobby Zolp hated his name, he was always last in line and had to sit at the back of the class. However, that all changed when he went to apply for scholarships. Loyola University offers a full tuition scholarship to anyone with the last name Zolp (the name Zolp must appear on the birth certificate).

This isn't the only named-based scholarship. North Carolina State University offers full scholarships to students named Gatling or Gatlin. Scholarship sources can help you find out if there is a scholarship with your name on it...literally.
