Are there scholarships for students with red hair?

There is one scholarship for students with natural red hair color, ScholarshipRed. ScholarshipRed offers one $500 scholarship for redheads each year. The scholarship is open to high school juniors and seniors who have natural red hair color, reside in the U.S. and have a high school GPA of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. The scholarship may be used at an accredited 2-year or 4-year college. Applicants must submit two photos to prove that they have natural red hair color, one of which must be from when the applicant was a child. Selection among eligible applicants is based on a creative piece that represents what it means to be a redhead.

Until 2008, there were no scholarships for redheads. Claims that there were scholarships for students with red hair were often made by paid scholarship matching services, to try to convince students and parents to pay to find scholarships. It is unclear why these services, which often made fraudulent guarantees, choose to make bogus claims about scholarships for students with ginger or red hair color, when there are plenty of other unusual scholarships.
