Yes. It does actually exist.

I belong to a couple of scholarship-search websites (because college students can always use free money), and it matched me up with this scholarship. It's put on by Jimmy Beans Wool, which is an online yarn store that I've never heard of . . . but they give out six $3,000 awards. All you have to do is submit an original pattern or photo of a recent project you've crocheted/knit, fill out an application form, and there's a short essay question at the end about what you plan to do in the next 5 years education-wise.

I know I'm just creating more competition for myself, but hey . . . there's six awards to go around, right? Cheesy

I hope this is the right place to post this, if it's not, mods please move it. Smiley For all you other college yarnies out there, click the link below if you are interested:
