ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP

Due to the success of previous writing competitions geared towards elementary and middle school students, we are targeting high school students with the 2020 scholarship competition. Writer’s Ink wants to provide an opportunity for high school students to be rewarded for their efforts to produce both personal excellence and an impact on their communities. 

We are looking for students who will use the money towards pursuing educational programs or funding community initiatives of their own; literary skill is applicable to all areas of interest and serves as an excellent way to distinguish students who have the potential to utilize the scholarship for greater pursuits.


Our mission has always been to serve the community, and the Writer’s Ink Scholarship is an excellent way for us to honor and invest in the future. We cannot wait to read your works of writing!

WHO CAN APPLY

High school students (9-12th grade) across the Garden Grove, Irvine, Orange, Saddleback Valley, Santa Ana, and Tustin Unified School districts may apply.
