Atheist Students Score Big Funding
Mon, 12-03-2012 - 12:34pm

A student organization of nonbelievers looks like it will be receiving $69,000 from the University of Madison-Wisconsin.  According to the article, this will be the largest grant ever awarded to a nontheistic student organization by a higher learning institute.

This really is a large amount if it's true that most of the campus-led organizations operate on $250 or less.  It will be interesting to see how they use the funds.  Congratulations to the AHA!
