Scholarships for being under 5 feet tall?

This is kind of a long shot, but I heard there are scholarships for all sorts of things... I'm a 4'11'' junior, and I was wondering if there are any scholarships out there specifically for being short/under 5 feet tall?

Yes, there are indeed numerous scholarships available for a wide range of qualifications, including height. While I don't have a comprehensive list of scholarships specifically for people under 5 feet tall, I can share one scholarship you might be interested in:

Little People of America Scholarship: This scholarship is available to members of Little People of America and their families, as well as others with medical conditions resulting in short stature. The award amounts vary annually and are based on the financial need, academic merit, and community involvement of the applicants. You can find more information on their official website.

Remember that while height-based scholarships may exist, it's essential to diversify your scholarship search. Look into opportunities based on your intended major, extracurricular activities, community service, or other unique personal qualifications. Ensure that you explore local and national scholarships, as well as any financial aid options provided by the colleges you're interested in attending. Be proactive and thorough in your search, and don't limit yourself to just one specific category.

Good luck in your scholarship search!
