There are some very strange scholarships out there. However, perhaps none are weirder than this idea of getting a scholarship because your eyes are green. There is no doubt that having green eyes is certainly a rare trait. Over 58% of the population in the world have brown eyes, 18% have blue eyes and 23% have the allusive green eyes. The real question we are trying to answer here is if having green eyes is enough to win you a scholarship? There are a lot of different view points on this eye color scholarship debate. In fact, we have written up a few posts on the subject. In our post “scholarships for girls with blue eyes” we learned that blue eyed scholarships do not exist. In our post “scholarships for girls with brown eyes” we learned that they don’t exist either. So, will green eyed scholarships be any different?
Green Eyed Scholarships?
In short, no they do not exist. Sadly, you cannot get a scholarship for having green eyes. There could certainly be a need since only 23% of the earths population have green eyes. However, there is currently no scholarship available. This doesn’t mean that eventually could be as scholarship just right now one doesn’t exist. So, where does that leave you?
