Are you a college student who embodies the virtues of the Triforce and needs five hundred bucks for school? Then the Triforce of Wisdom scholarship might be for you.
The annual award is offered by the fan site Hidden Triforce, which requires entrants to either be current college students or graduating seniors headed for higher education. In order to qualify, you have to write a 500-2000 word essay about "a time when you have displayed an exceptional amount of courage or wisdom," presumably the same amount that Link displays in the endless purgatory of puzzle solving, ocarina playing and Ganon battling that is his life.
Admittedly, courage and wisdom only covers two of the three triangular virtues, although I'm guessing that's because it's kind of weird to ask kids to write an essay about a time when they displayed an exceptional amount of power. If you'd like to enter you have until December 15. The winner will be announced on January 31, 2016.

Now that the world is starting to re-emerge from its self-imposed COVID-19 quarantine, we’re all going to have to start making some adjustments to both short-term and long-term changes. And the questions… Should customers be hounded out of a store if they aren’t wearing a face mask? Are crocheted face masks safe or not? And […]
Maybe you had a piano teacher as a kid that drove you off the instrument forever. Or maybe you always wished for some serious training, but never found the time. Whether you have dreams of tossing off a Beethoven or Chopin piece at the drop of a hat or you have visions of being the […]
