Apply for the 2013 American Atheists Scholarship!

If you’re a college student (or a high school senior about to enter college), American Atheists has some money for you!

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. The runner-up receives $1,000. And there is also an LGBT-specific scholarship worth $1,000. As an added bonus, all applicants get a year-long free membership into AA and winners receive free admission to AA’s national conference this March.

Applicants must complete the application and write a 500- to 1,000-word essay about his or her specific atheist activism. Submissions may include up to three photos to support the essay; the applicant must be clearly identified or otherwise identifiable in all images.

The deadline is February 1st, so start applying! As a former scholarship recipient, I can tell you that AA cares more about your activism than your writing skills. Show them what you’re doing to spread reason and get people thinking rationally!

All the information you need is right here. Good luck!
