Religious Scholarships

Religious organizations are notorious for their charity and community involvement, catering to those in need. Most people have attended at least one church-sponsored event such as carnivals, concerts, benefit dinners, raffles, etc. A number of junior high and high school students go to religious classes, volunteer with children, participate in youth groups, sing in choirs, attend services, or even go to a faith-based high school. In turn, religious scholarships help individuals of varying religious beliefs pay for school.

Winning Religious Scholarships

Religious scholarships reward students who are actively involved with faith-related activities, pursuing religious-affiliated careers or ministry work, or even those who simply belong to that church. If you are active in your church community or strong in your religious faith, there are religious scholarships for you. Providing scholarship opportunities and financial aid are ideal ways for churches and religious organizations to show their commitment to helping its members go to college. Religious organizations sponsor a variety of national, regional, and local scholarships. Below are links to the most common religious scholarships in our database. For a complete list of scholarships that match your faith, conduct a free college scholarship search here on Scholarships.com and indicate your religion in your profile. There are even scholarships for those who consider themselves atheist, agnostic, or non-religious. If you know of a religious scholarship that is not in our database, let us know. We constantly update our database to help students of all faiths find money for college.
