Agnostic/Atheist Scholarships

There are scholarships that pertain to individual religiosity, even as specific for agnostics (those who believe religious claims are unknowable or impossible to prove, but may have some religious beliefs) or atheists (those who deny the existence of any god). Funding for these scholarships are as generous as any other religious scholarships.

Students who consider themselves agnostic or atheist face less competition than other traditional, religious scholarships. Freethinkers, or those who believe that there is not sufficient evidence to support the existence of a supernatural phenomena, may also fall into these denominations.
