    How to win vegetarian and vegan scholarships

    Like any scholarship, vegetarian and vegan scholarships see a lot of applicants. To succeed in your application, it’ll be important to write compelling essays. Remember, your vegetarianism itself does not set you apart from any of the other candidates – everyone applying is a vegetarian!

    So, since you only have limited space with which to make an impact, try to speak to the values which are at the root of your vegetarianism, and discuss where those values will take you in life. Read up on the mission of the organization offering the scholarship and talk about your plans to demonstrate those values in the real world.

    For example, many vegetarian organizations value animal rights very highly. You can speak about how animal rights have motivated your vegetarianism, and how you hope to use the money from the scholarship to land a job that helps protect those rights.

    Crafting the perfect essay

    Scholarship essays are tough, but we can help you through the process. Check out our guides on how to begin and end scholarship essays, how to write a winning essay, and how to write about yourself. We can also walk you through some of the most common scholarship essay prompts, and show you how to write a scholarship resume.

    Frequently asked questions about vegetarian and vegan scholarships

    Can I get a scholarship for being vegan?

    Yes! There are a good number of scholarships out there for both vegetarians and vegans. One great example is the Vegetarian Resource Group Scholarship. They give away between $20,000 and $30,000 per year in educational funding. Check out our full list for other great vegetarian and vegan scholarships.

    Can vegans win scholarships for vegetarians?

    Yes! By definition, any vegan is also vegetarian. So, you qualify just as much as any vegetarian for these scholarships. 

    Do pescatarians qualify for vegetarian scholarships?

    The answer to this question will vary on a scholarship-by-scholarship basis. Be sure to check out our list and see if any of the scholarships permit pescatarians in their rules.

    And that’s it! We hope you’ve found some helpful scholarships to help pay off those pesky college (or research) expenses. If not, consider checking out our scholarship directory – you’re bound to find something that suits your fancy. If you’re looking for scholarships that fit your background, take a look at these scholarships sorted by background/demographic, major, and even home state!

    Whatever you end up doing, we wish you the best of luck in your scholarship search and future endeavors. Stay healthy!
