The National Secular Society Scholarship

The NSS has launched a scholarship to support students who conduct research relevant to secularism and the promotion of human rights.

We're inviting requests for grants ranging from £500-£3,000. The annual scholarship is open to anyone publishing research in English.

Applicants will be expected to demonstrate why the NSS should fund their work, ideally with reference to our Secular Charter. Award recipients will write at least one opinion piece for the NSS to share details of their findings with the Society's members and wider audience.

Contact education@secularism.org.uk for more information.

Scholarship funding round 2

The second round of scholarship funding is now open, It will close at 17.00 on Thursday 1 November.

There are two rounds of scholarship applications per year. (November to May, and May to November). We aim to award funding at the start of the month after applications close.
