Apply for the Scholarship that Changes Your Future

We want everyone to take Write of Passage. We have two opportunities to join a cohort: Scholarships and Fellowships. Read more about the difference and which you should apply for below.

two ways to win

Scholarship or Fellowship: You’re Heading for a Bold Future


We offer a limited number of competitive merit-based scholarships for students eager to join the course but unable to afford the full price. Most of our scholarships are offered for 50% off the Essential Edition price ($2000). If you are awarded a scholarship and unable to enroll at 50% off, we offer a select number of larger scholarships, depending on your circumstances. 

Scholarship applications are accepted for a limited time and are competitive. We encourage you to use our payment plan option, if able, to guarantee your enrollment.

Scholarship winners will be chosen based on answers to the following questions: 

  • Why is taking Write of Passage important to you? 
  • What do you hope to achieve in Write of Passage? 
  • What impact do you hope to have through your writing? 

We’re looking for applicants who will bring a spirit of curiosity, energy, and commitment to their writing. Top scholarship students in past cohorts have gone on to become leaders in the Write of Passage community.


For the upcoming cohort, we’re offering a limited number of full-ride fellowship seats for applicants who work in education. Fellows will enroll in the cohort at no-cost and in a small community of education pioneers within the cohort. 

We’re looking for applicants who are working on innovative education-related problems and projects. If you’re focused on building the future of education, please apply. Our Education Fellowship will screen for:

  • Writing ability
  • Education-related experience
  • Spiky points-of-view – take a stand! 


How are Fellows chosen?

Students will share 1-3 links which showcase previous creative work. They will also answer the following questions: 

  1. What’s your vision for the future of education?
  2. Name one radical idea that is not discussed as much as it should be.

Combined, answers shouldn’t be more than 750 words.

Upon completion of the cohort we will analyze the work quality and engagement of each Fellow, and support the Fellows in finding projects to work with partners and friends of Write of Passage.

Do you accept payment plans for Scholarships?

All scholarship payments must be paid in full. We are not able to accept payment plans. Scholarships apply to our Essential Edition only (one-time cohort participant). We cannot offer scholarships for our Premium Edition (Accelewrite); however you may be granted the ability to upgrade at a different rate upon successful completion of the cohort.

What is the difference between a Scholarship and a Fellowship?

Scholarships are provided based on the determination of need. There is an application process that ensures scholarship recipients are committed to the course, their writing journey, and uphold Write of Passage ideals. Fellowships are granted to those dedicated to innovating education. Write of Passage works with our partners to place Fellows in projects or new positions, and connects them with like-minded creators.
