Religious Scholarships

Religious organizations are known for their desire to be active in their community and to help people in need. Chances are good you’ve attended some sort of church-sponsored event in your life, be it a benefit dinner, a raffle, a concert, a carnival, or any of a number of other activities. Religion is also an important part of life for many junior high and high school students, as they attend religious classes, volunteer with children, participate in a youth group, sing in the choir, or just attend services with their family. With these things in mind, it should come as no surprise that a number of religious scholarships exist to help students of a variety of faiths pay for school.

Winning Religious Scholarships

While some religious scholarships are a reward for students who were heavily involved in volunteering with their church or who plan to become religious leaders, others are awarded to members of the faith based simply on church membership or on other criteria. So if you are active in your religious community, or otherwise a proud member of your faith, there are religious scholarship awards out there for you. After all, college students need financial aid, and religious scholarships are a great way for churches to show their commitment to helping members of their community in need. To that end, religious organizations sponsor a variety of national, regional, and local scholarships. Below, we have links to some of the most common religious scholarships in our database. If you do not see your faith represented below, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any scholarship opportunities for you. Conduct a free college scholarship search here on Scholarships.com and make sure to indicate your religion in your profile. If we’ve heard of a religious scholarship offered for students of your faith and you meet its requirements, it will show up in your search results.

We add awards to our database constantly, and are committed to helping students of all faiths find money for college.
