Abandoned university classrom

Perhaps you attend one of those haunted schools, or have had experiences outside campus that you’ve been dying (no pun intended) to share with the world. Or, maybe you’ve got a knack for fiction – your imagination leads the way in your everyday life. Either way, we’d love to hear your story, and to add a bit of incentive, US Ghost Adventures has decided to offer an annual scholarship award to support the studies of a young student of any major. $2,000 will go towards your education, to combat the scary prices of textbooks, a little padding for tuition, or even to go towards supplies you may need throughout the year.

While we’re all about ghosts, we also believe that education is the lifeblood of a thriving community. So, write us a scary story. Fiction or non-fiction. Tell us about the strangest, spookiest, or most unexplained event that’s happened in your life, or impress us with your imagination!


Scholarship launching January 1st, 2022.

All eligible and interested applicants should apply using the embedded form below. We will notify applicants within 30 days of each deadline. If you win, we'll reach out and ask for payment details, and we'll share your article on our site!



Any student currently enrolled in an accredited college


Veteran Preference

Are you an honorably discharged veteran? Send a copy of your DD-214 with your application and include mention of it in your essay


1,000 Word Essay

Please include an essay (1,000 word minimum) that tells your scary story. Remember, this can be fiction or non-fiction
