Health Care Scholarship by The Recovery Village

The Recovery Village is giving a $1,000 scholarship to students pursuing a career in medicine. By supporting students with this amount of money, the company provides unique opportunities for education and personal development.


Full Description

The applicants have to submit short 500-word essays describing why they care about preventing and treating substance use disorders and conducting mental health treatments.

One of these essays, based on stories from personal experience, will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Only US residents or permanent residents can apply by sending their essays by June 30, 2018.

The Recovery Village will consider only clear, well-written essays that address the given theme and submissions will be evaluated by a selection committee. The following criteria will be considered: completeness of application, originality, creativity, writing skills, inspiration, and demonstrated interest in the theme.

The scholarship prize can be spent on tuition, fees, books, or supplies for the applicant’s classes at an accredited college or university. 

Who's eligible?

To be considered for this scholarship, you have to be a US citizen or permanent US resident who has enrolled in or is already accepted by an accredited college or university or even a graduating high school senior who plans to pursue a career in medicine.

Employees of the scholarship’s sponsor and members of their immediate families are not eligible. The same stands for the employees of parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, and divisions.

How to Apply

Candidates have to complete an online scholarship application form by June 30, 2018. This application includes personal details and an essay. The essay has to be at least 500 words long describing why the applicant is passionate about health care, particularly substance use disorder and mental health treatment.

The limit is one application per person, so multiple or duplicate entries from the same individual will be disqualified. Also, late responses, submitted after June 30, 2018, at 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time, will not be considered.

Upon receiving the essays, they will become the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned, so the applicants must consent to a talent release.

As soon as the sponsor decides upon the winner, the award will be credited to the student’s school.
