* In ''[[Film/TheMightyDucks D3: The Mighty Ducks]]'', The titular team is given full-ride scholarships to a prestigious private high school called Eden Hall Academy. The varsity hockey team is upset because the Ducks took the spots on the freshman hockey team which would have gone to their younger siblings. The board of trustees decides to pull the Ducks' scholarships when the team is found to be struggling, but the Ducks are saved by [[BigDamnHeroes Gordon Bombay Lawyer Mode]], who coerces the board into restoring them.

The varsity hockey team is upset because the Ducks took the spots on the freshman hockey team which would have gone to their younger siblings. They're a bit nicer to Adam Banks, who comes from a rich family, might have attended Eden Hall anyway, and gets called up to the varsity team himself.

* Subverted and averted in the WhateleyUniverse. The majority of the students attending are on some form of scholarship - largely because, otherwise, there would literally be no way for them to afford it; WordOfGod has the yearly tuition fees at around $100,000 - and that's not counting textbooks, school supplies, and uniforms. Largely averted in that it rarely comes up in the stories themselves - the students usually have enough to enjoy themselves (with the exception of Jade and various gadgeteers and devisors, whose money woes are always directly linked to the supplies needed for various projects sucking up every penny they have).

* Literature/{{Greyfriars}} has Mark Linley, a Lancashire lad who worked in a factory, and Tom Redwing, a (temporarily) orphaned fisherman's boy. Both have strong GaryStu overtones and both were very popular with readers.

* A subversion in ''Film/TheSlumsOfBeverlyHills''. While the schools in the 90210 area code seem to be public, the protagonist's father keeps moving around within the district so his kids can attend what he considers to be "better" schools than the ones in poorer areas.

Added DiffLines:

* Jan Di from ''Series/BoysBeforeFlowers'', just like the "original" Tsukushi Makino. In a subversion it's not just for her booksmarts, but because [[InterruptedSuicide she saved a Shinhwa High student from commiting suicide]].

* Wendell from ''Series/{{Bones}}'' was an intern who was able to attend because of a scholarship. How the other interns are paying for their education is never addressed, but one episode focused on Wendell being in danger of losing his scholarship because there wasn't enough money anymore. [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, an anonymous donation (heavily implied to be Brennan and/or Hodgins) saved the scholarship program and Wendell returgned to being a reoccurring character.]]
