Scholarships for Atheists and Freethinkers

Hey, everyone! I received this e-mail from Secular Student Alliance regarding scholarships for atheists and freethinkers! Here's what it says:

2013 Scholarships

The National Atheist Party has four new scholarships for secular students: two for high school students and two for college students. They are all valued at $1,000. To be eligible students must be pursuing an education in research/applied sciences or demonstrate secular activism. The submission deadline for college students is November 1st 2012 and the deadline for high school students is March 1st 2013. For more information check out the NAP scholarships page.

American Atheists has an Annual Founder's Scholarship. If you have demonstrated a record for activism in atheism this scholarship is available to you. The scholarship is $2,000 for first place and $1,000 for the runner up. The Founder's scholarship is open to students currently enrolled in a university and to high school seniors who will be attending college next year. To apply, you must email AJ Johnson and ask for an application or you may call them at (908) 276-7300. The deadline for this scholarship is January 31st 2013. For more information go to AA's scholarship page. For more info on scholarships for secular students in general keep an eye out for our scholarships page.

Go get 'em!
