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.

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