THGM Writing Services is calling on all high school seniors enrolled in a first-year post-secondary writing-related program. They are eligible for a $630 scholarship to pursue first-year writing studies, such as writing, journalism, literature and communications.
March 23, 2022, South Dundas, Ontario – Young writers accepted into first year of a post-secondary writing-related program can now apply for the THGM MUSE Scholarship. The scholarship awards $630 to one high school senior based on a short story written in prose or in script.
“We are always finding the right words for our clients,” explained THGM President David Leonhardt. “All our writers were once young, so we want to help up-and-coming creatives pursue studies in writing-related fields. First year fees are always the toughest. We’ll be their muse.”
Among the programs that qualify are creative writing, journalism, English literature, communications and some theatre programs. Students must be registered for full-time studies to qualify.
The application consists of a 400-600 word short story about a character in the program they are enrolled in. This helps students ready their mindset for their studies, while giving them a common theme on which to focus their creativity.
“This is one of the few scholarships just for writing, and one of even fewer that Canadians can apply for,” David Leonhardt added. “Let’s give local creatives a chance.”
Providing innovative tools to support the writing community is nothing new for THGM Writing Services, having created free case studies, worksheets and other tools for writers.
The deadline for students to apply for the THGM MUSE Scholarship is May 30. Interested candidates are invited to apply at https://thgmwriters.com/resources/scholarship/
