Pagan/Wiccan Scholarships

For students of Wiccan faith who practice a neo-pagan, earth-centered religion, there are several Wiccan/Pagan scholarships to help pay for college. While the practice may not be as popular as other religions in academia, there are several Wiccan/Pagan scholarships exclusively for students who demonstrate their religious activism in their communities and schools. Specific Wiccan and Pagan organizations have put aside money specifically to support students who work to eradicate the false stigma associated with Wiccan and Pagan religions. There are also other organizations, such as the Jewish Federation of the East Bay, that offer college financial aid through college scholarships to applicants of any religious group, including Wiccan and Pagan believers.

College-Based Scholarships

If you are a graduate or professional student interested in studying ancient religions, look for programs that offer fellowships for religious studies. Countless religion and theology programs offer grants or fellowships for both seminary students and students just looking to learn more about religious history, tradition, and philosophy. Religious history often explores natural religions such as Wiccan/Pagan. Since religion programs are specific, there are unique grant opportunities for graduate and professional students that will help cover the cost of education.
