1. Chick and Sophie Major Memorial Duck Calling Contest 

We couldn’t pass this one up. According to their website, the Chick and Sophie Major Memorial Duck Calling Contest is open to any high school senior in the U.S. who has the ability to… call ducks. The scholarship awards up to $2,000 to each recipient.

The scholarship actually takes the form of a competition, held on November 25 in Stuttgart, Arkansas. Contestants have 90 seconds to use four calls: hail, feed, comeback, and mating.

Granted, it’s a pretty unique scholarship—but if you happen to be gifted in duck calls, it might just be worth the road trip.

Deadline: November 25, 2016
