If interested, please tell us your story. In 500-1,000 words, we want to know what it was like, what happened, and what it’s like now. How has addiction affected your life and/or the lives of loved ones around you? How has addiction motivated you to change your life for the better? What obstacles—either past, present, or future—must you overcome, either in sobriety or in pursuing your education?
We realize addiction is a family disease. That although the addict uses, the family often suffers along with them.

Sober Living Scholarship
Design for Recovery wants to help kick start your journey toward discovering a better life. For many, education is a vital part of the process of overcoming drug abuse. We believe firmly that the key to ending the epidemic of addiction is in service to others.
We also believe that this scholarship will motivate you to lend a helping hand to a struggling addict in the future. It is a chain reaction that may one day reverse the woeful trend that now befalls this country, with drug overdoses claiming the lives of more than 70,000 people every year.
It is a great opportunity for people who don’t have health insurance. The recovery process can rack up a heavy bill in most treatment centers. For those who don’t have the financial resources to pay for addiction recovery, recovering addicts scholarships are a great way to meet your sober life goals.
Please submit your personal stories of alcohol addiction, substance abuse, or motivation for a brighter future. We will be awarding a well-deserving student with our $1,000 scholarship. E-mail all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Treatment Center Scholarships Vs. University Scholarships
In comparison, university scholarships often require you to meet stringent academic requirements as part of the application process. Although we do not offer a full tuition scholarship, we believe that even a small amount of money can help recovering addicts make their dreams a reality. We want to provide the resources necessary for you to focus on your recovery and achieve success in the future.
We understand how challenging addiction can be, and we want to give you the opportunity to make changes in your life. We want to help you move forward and make a difference in the world. We hope you take advantage of this special opportunity and wish you the best on your journey toward recovery. So apply now and tell us your story!
