Agnostic/Atheist Scholarships

Agnosticism is the belief that religious claims are impossible to prove. Agnostics neither believe nor disbelieve in the existence of a higher power. Atheism is a pure disbelief in the existence of a higher power. However, just like their religious counterparts, there are scholarships for the non-religious student population including Atheists, Agnostics, Secularists, and anyone who considers themselves to be non-religious. Organizations like the Freedom From Religion Foundation have contests and wards for the free-thinkers of the world that are just as generous as those offered by religious organizations.
