Pagan/Wiccan Scholarships

It may seem like you’re at a disadvantage if you’re looking for Pagan or Wiccan scholarships, or for that matter, any scholarship that is very specific to a student type. But because those scholarships and the student groups who would apply for the awards are fairly uncommon, you may have a better chance at landing one than scholarship seekers looking for awards based on more general criteria, such as academic merit.

Pagan or Wiccan scholarships look to reward students not only based on their beliefs, but on their achievements up to that point and what they hope to do on the college level. Some also don’t ask whether you belong to a particular religious group, asking instead for an interest in their organization’s aims and affiliation. So if you’re intrigued by these groups, by all means explore all of your options. There could be scholarship money available to you just for exploring certain traditions.

College-Based Scholarships

If you’re more interested in studying about paganism or ancient religions than practicing them, there could be fellowship and grant opportunities out there for you to apply for. The University of Oxford, for example, administers funding through the department of Oriental Studies. The school’s Griffith Egyptological Fund offers grants to promote research into the history of Egypt and the Nile Valley. That includes studies of Ancient, Hellenistic, and Christian Egypt and the early pagan and Christian kingdoms of those regions. If you’re interested in religious studies, consider unique grant opportunities like this one, as there may be less competition for these than in the more traditional disciplines.
