Scholarships help students get that much-desired college education either for free or for less. Great news for those who want scholarships but don't want to write or are weak in crafting the notorious essay - there are scholarships that make you leverage your creativity in different areas, and not just writing.

There are plenty of ways to earn money for college without the need for essays, reports U.S. News. Some of these make use of your talents, while some offer you the chance to randomly receive an amount simply by joining. Here are some ways to earn win scholarships without writing an essay.

Be a Filmmaker

Well, not a whole movie just yet. There are certain scholarships that can be won by making worthwhile videos. The Courageous Persuaders, for example, awards high school students with more than $26,000 in scholarships for creating a 30-second TV commercial about the dangers of underage drinking or texting while driving.

Be a Game Designer

While playing video games can drain your wallet with all the consoles, systems, games, and in-game purchases, designing your own video games can snag you enough some money to fund your education.

Microsoft's Imagine Cup, for example, awards teams of three eligible students with huge amounts of money for creating apps and games "that shape how we live, work, and play." First place takes home $100,000, second place receives $25,000, and third place gets $15,000.

Just Join In

Some scholarships can be won by simply joining in. The Harris Poll $1,000 Scholarship Sweepstakes Drawing, for example, only requires students to apply, and participate in online polls.

Another is Microsoft's Hello Cloud 2017. Students joining will only need to sign up for Azure through Microsoft Imagine and then complete one or more Hello Cloud activities. Each activity means one chance to win $1,000.
