The Student Activist Scholarship program was founded by Life Members Barbara J. Baldock, Dr. Phillip Butler, Lillian B. Ramsden, Rice O’Dell, and Irving Yablon. American Atheists awards two $1,000 O’Hair Scholarships and four $500 President’s Scholarships to atheist students in the United States. You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to be awarded a scholarship, but you do have to attend a U.S.-based institution. American Atheists is also proud to award two $500 Chinn Scholarships for LGBTQ Atheist Activism that recognize atheist activism in the area of LGBTQ equality. Members of the LGBTQ community and allies are welcome to apply. For more information, or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
