scholarship books... yuck

Can looking through scholarship books be any more rediculous? There are probably a few thousand scholarships listed, and I am elligible for, what... like, five of them? My parents are not members of the American Legion, therefore my prospects are automatically cut in half. I'm not a minority, and that whittles it down to about a fourth of the original list. And since I'm not going to be a nurse/astronomer/athlete, there are almost no scholarships left for me. I need to cover $13,000 more for this year, and I don't know how I'm going to do it, seeing as how my parents spent their life savings on my brother's wedding. There's a $54 million jackpot tonight. Maybe I'll buy a ticket...
