The Satanic Temple (TST) has unveiled a college scholarship to help high school students pursue a higher education.
The Salem, Massachusetts-based organization, which claims its goal is to support separation between church and state, said the $500 "Devil's Advocate Scholarship" is open to 2020 graduates.
Applicants must answer one of the following questions, which can be in the form of an essay, poem or another creative expression.
1. What initiatives have you undertaken that are consistent with TST's tenets and mission?
2. Please discuss and describe in detail any one of the teachers who crushed your spirit, undermined your self-confidence and made you hate every minute you were forced to be in school.
"The applicant will only be judged on how their submission best exemplifies the mission of The Satanic Temple and the prompt they chose to answer," according to the organization's website.
TST co-founder Malcolm Jarry said the scholarship intends to highlight the problems with compulsory schooling.
He said TST rejects mandatory schooling because it "violates students' fundamental civil rights and ingrains obedience to unearned authority."
