Humanities Scholarships

Humanities is among the most popular majors for students pursuing a post-secondary education and is a multi-disciplinary pursuit that includes the study of languages, literature in many different languages, art, music, religion and philosophy. Like "Liberal Arts", a Humanities major is good for someone who is still unsure what, specifically, they wish to study, but have it narrowed down to a few of the aforementioned. There will be plenty of time to narrow the scope or specialty during college, perhaps even switching majors altogether at some point. Either way, there are plenty of Humanities scholarships to help you finance your education and the pursuit of any or all of these important and fascinating topics.
