In the college world, many honors students get financial aid through what is called a "work scholarship".

This is, for all intents and purposes, indentured servitude.

The work itself is almost always menial and meaningless, and it is easier to schedule an interview with manti te'o's girlfriend than it is to find out how much the scholarship is actually worth. But rest assured, you will never see a dime of your "wages".

Also,if you come up short of the 75 required work hours in the semester, prepare to have your balls lopped off.
Person 1: "Did you get in to that college?"

Person 2: "Yeah, and I got offered a work scholarship!"

Person 1: "I thought indentured servitude was illegal?"
