If you’re a college student (or a high school senior about to enter college), the deadline for the American Atheists Founders’ Scholarship is January 31st.
If you’ve done any activism this past year individually or with a group, if you’ve written letters-to-the-editor which were published, if you were an outspoken atheist in some way or another, you should think about applying.
The winner receives a $2,000 scholarship.
I’ve had the good fortune of knowing several of the past winners (and was one myself a few years back) and I can safely say this is all about your activism and not all about your essay. This is a scholarship where your actions really do speak louder than your words. So let AA know what you’ve been doing and may the most deserving person win the award 🙂
