The Freedom From Religion Foundation Scholarships are all due next month! There are three different scholarships: one for high school students (due June 1st), one for college students 25 years or older (due June 15th), and finally one for college students under 25 (also due June 15th). All applicants must submit an essay on a specific topic. Winnings range from $200-$3,000 for each scholarship category but there is no specific limit to how many could win (honorable mentions are awarded $200). If you are college-bound for fall, apply now!
