The “Self-Publishing School Creative Writing Scholarship”

Share Your Message and Help Pay For School (even if you don’t have time to write another huge essay)

What’s the Scholarship?

Are you in college right now and you enjoy writing? Do you see yourself becoming either an author or a writer in the near future? Or maybe you’re just looking for new ways to fund your education?



With the brand new “Self-Publishing School Creative Writing Scholarship” our goal is to inspire the next generation of upcoming authors with an open essay contest.

But don’t worry…

You don’t have to write another huge essay on another boring topic.

This time there’s no required essay format or structure. No crazy rules.

Our only requirement is that you have to write a message that you want to share with the world in just 500 words.

It’s very simple. It could be a preview of the first chapter of a book you’re working on, a cause you care deeply about or a personal story that could impact others.

The best submission will earn a $1,000 grant that will apply towards their undergraduate college tuition!

“For The Next Generation of Authors and Writers”

Chandler Bolt, CEO & Founder of Self-Publishing School

What’s Self-Publishing School?

Featured in the INC 5000 list as one of the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in America, Self Publishing School is an online education company that teaches people how to write, market, & publish their first book in as little as 90 days.



We believe that writing a book has an incredible power to bring change and impact to the world….

It’s what we call “Leveraged Impact”, like a chain of continuous impact.

This might sound crazy, but check out how this works. you see the image of Emma Sumner and I in an Interview for Good Morning Sacramento?

It all started when I first published my book. Then I helped and inspired her dad self-publish his book, and then Emma got inspired to write her own!

Now Emma recently just had her first paid speaking gig, where she’s going to be inspiring more kids as well!

Since we’re in the business of changing lives, we’re investing in the future of our industry by helping the best writing talent to afford their education.
