Black Skeptics Los Angeles Are Sponsoring ‘First in the Family’ Scholarships

Once again, the group Black Skeptics Los Angeles is raising money for its fantastic “First in the Family” scholarship fund:

Last year, Black Skeptics Los Angeles (BSLA), a 501c3 organization, spearheaded its First in the Family Humanist Scholarship initiative, which focuses on providing resources to undocumented, foster care, homeless and LGBTQ youth who will be the first in their families to go to college. Responding directly to the school-to-prison pipeline crisis in communities of color, BSLA is the first atheist organization to specifically address college pipelining for youth of color with an explicitly anti-racist multicultural emphasis.

They’re hoping to raise enough money to give away at least four scholarships worth $1,000 each. Importantly, you don’t have to be an atheist to apply (though one of the scholarships, with the financial support of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, is reserved for an atheist).

The eligibility requirements and application are right here. It’s a wonderful cause and another example of Humanism in action, so I hope you’ll consider supporting it!
