The Commaful Annual National Scholarship

At Commaful, we want to empower the next generation of students. We will be giving $1,000 scholarships for up to 3 qualified students every year!

Supporting The Next Generation

Our goal has always been to empower people, whether it's to share their perspectives about the world or to reach more people wih their voice. People share with essays, fanfiction, original fiction, comics, or more. We have been amazed by the quality of stories shared by some of these amazing creators and want to provide more resources for students at the start of their careers to thrive. This scholarship is for the students who are making an impact on the world and hope to continue their passion for learning. Recipients will recieve $1,000 towards educational expenses. They will also recieve other resources from the Commaful team. We hope to provide mentorship and support for recipients to help them further develop their careers.
