  1. is there any scholarships that are made for people who are left handed like myself? I have been trying to look for some scholarships that is intended for left handed people but someone have seem sketchy.

    • Hi Capri. I only know of one scholarship for left-handed students like yourself – Pickard Parry Pfau Southpaw Scholarship (http://pickardparry.com/scholarship). The deadline is July 31, 2016. That is the only scholarships I know about that pretty much only requires that the student is left-handed. I hope this helps! Good luck!
