Agnostic/Atheist Scholarships

Scholarships for students who are agnostic (those who believe religious claims are unknowable or impossible to prove, but may have some religious beliefs) or atheist (those who deny the existence of any god) aren’t as common as traditional religious scholarships that award funding to students who are Catholic or Jewish, for example. But they are out there, and most are just as generous as those awarding funding based on your religion.

Students who consider themselves agnostic or atheist may then have a better chance to land some of these scholarships because there is less competition for them, so make sure you consider your beliefs – or lack of them – when seeking out awards you may be eligible for. Freethinkers, or those who believe opinions should be based on reason rather than tradition or dogma, also fall into this category, although students who consider themselves freethinkers may also consider themselves both agnostic and atheist.

by Erica Lewis

My name is Erica Lewis and I attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I am majoring in food science and technology. I chose UNL because it was the right fit for me: It was close to home but far enough away that I didn't feel like my parents were right there!
