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.

April 3, 2018

by Susan Dutca

A professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz believed she was "unstalkable" up until a student of hers began sending messages that were at first flirtatious and ultimately turned to threats of rape and murder. Much of the #MeToo conversation in higher education revolves around educators who "harass" or "target" students; but some educators themselves actually become vulnerable to harassment by their own students and remain silent out of a sense of guilt, embarrassment, and often the fear of losing their jobs.
