Scholarships and Essay Contests for Secular Students


Every year, the Secular Student Alliance and other like minded organizations offer scholarships to students. Check here frequently to see what's being offered.

The Secular Student Alliance Activist Scholarship

The Secular Student Alliance is proud to offer five $2,500 and six $1,000 open scholarships for individual secular student activists! Any current SSA student member enrolled full-time in a United States university, college, or equivalent program (including graduate programs) is welcome to apply! 

One of the $1,000 scholarships is reserved specifically for students attending a Historically Black College or University

Two of these scholarships are reserved for the the Simon-Strauss Scholarship, available exclusively to high school secular students in California. There is one $2,500 and one $1,000 scholarship available.

The Florida Humanist Association is giving two $1,000 scholarships to secular students going full-time to a college or university within the state of Florida. Each student will get an all-inclusive ticket to the FREEFLO Conference (Freethought Florida Conference) on Oct 20-22, 2017, in Orlando, a hotel room for Friday and Saturday night, and a stipend towards travel. Applicants will be judged by an SSA and Florida Humanist Association panel to receive this scholarship, and continue to be eligible for the SSA Scholarships.
