At Wattpad, we believe that everyone has a story to tell. For our 2015 Wattpad Scholarship program, we asked students to tell us their own true stories, drawing on something that has impacted their life and helped shape who they have become.

Of the 500 submissions we received from students throughout the U.S. and Canada, we have selected five winners and are thrilled to award each with a $1500 scholarship. Read all of our winners and honorable mentions here.

For Wattpad, this scholarship program is an example of how the power of a story can be used to create opportunity, and further support students in their educational aspirations. We are truly inspired by the number of impressive entries we received.

We are pleased to share our 2015 Wattpad Scholarship Recipients, with links to their Wattpad profiles, and a compilation of the stories that won them their well-deserved scholarships. Congrats again to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated for your inspiring entries!
