Pagan/Wiccan Scholarships

If you are looking for scholarships specifically for students who practice Wicca/Pagan, unfortunately, you are out of luck. Not only is the practice not popular in academia, but it is also difficult to find large enough groups who can fund scholarship programs. Because those scholarships are not offered, it is better to apply for general scholarships based on different criteria such as academic merit, or less specific special interests.

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 Wicca/Pagan. Since religion programs are specific, there are unique grant opportunities for graduate and professional students that will help cover the cost of education.

Harvard students and alumni will testify in support of Harvard during the admissions trial this week, defending its "race-conscious admissions policy" against claims that it discriminates against Asian-American applicants. The trial is the latest chapter in a lawsuit filed in 2014 by Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA).

Harvard University has been accused of "balancing its undergraduate classes to ensure that it had admitted its desired share of students of each race and ethnicity" and also for penalizing Asian-American applicants by "systematically giving them lower scores on a metric admissions officers use to measure personality." Adam Mortara, a lawyer representing SFFA, stated that the university scores applicants in four categories: academic achievement, athletic ability, extracurriculars, and personality.
