The liberal arts are some of the most desirable degrees not only for the subject matter but for the transferable skills into other jobs. Critical thinking is one of the most valuable skills you can learn for any job. A liberal arts degree prepares students for a life of learning. The good news is that there are a number of organizations that still have a deep love for the liberal arts and are willing to help fund the best individuals in the field.
If you are pursuing a liberal arts degree at any level there are some great scholarship options available. Not only that, but there are a number of organizations that want to support people from underrepresented backgrounds as well as individuals who are looking to pursue research to grow the field. With such a wide array of scholarships, there’s likely to be something for you too. Take a look at what we came up with for our list of 50 scholarships in the liberal arts.
