Students: American Atheists Wants to Give You Money

American Atheists has announced that it is time to apply for their 2014 Student Activist Scholarships. Here are the details:


The American Atheists awards the $2,000 O’Hair Scholarship and the $1,000 President’s Scholarship to atheist students attending college or university. The awards are given every year at the American Atheists National Convention. The Student Activist Scholarship program was founded by Life Members Barbara J. Baldock, Dr. Phillip Butler, Lillian B. Ramsden, Rice O’Dell and Irving Yablon.

American Atheists is proud to also award the $1,000 Chinn Scholarship for LGBT Atheist Activism. This scholarship recognizes activism in the area of LGBT equality. You do not have to be a member of the LGBT community to receive this scholarship; allies are encouraged to apply.


The scholarships can be used by current college students or by high school students entering college the upcoming year. Additionally, full-time graduate students are eligible for the scholarship. Applicants must be atheists and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 (in academic subjects) or better. Applicants are judged based on their actions as atheists and activists. Applicants of all races, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations are encouraged to apply.

You do not have to be a member of American Atheists to apply for a scholarship, but you do have to be a member to accept a scholarship if you win. All applicants are offered a free one year membership to American Atheists.

Free money! Go!
