The Best Awards

It's not too late to turn in your Best Award application! You have two more days! If you or your group displayed excellence in activism during the 2011-2012 school year we want to hear about it and reward you for it! Affiliate groups and individual activists can apply for recognition through our Best Awards. Applications are due 5/31. The winner will be announced and presented with the award during our annual conference in July. To apply for one of the awards, click one of the following links:

Freedom From Religion Foundation Scholarships

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!

Check our scholarships page to see if there are any new scholarships floating about for non-theistic students. Make sure you get the FFRF applications in by June 1st!
