This scholarship has been established in honor of parents who have lost their battle with substance abuse. Our goal is to ensure the children of those lost are not forgotten.
We recognize the hardships faced by children who have suffered through the loss of a parent’s life, and who suffered in silence during their parent’s active addiction. This scholarship was established to help students pursuing higher education, be it a trade school or university, who have lost a parent to an overdose or related loss of life.
Please write a 300-500 word essay detailing how addiction has impacted your life, as well as your academic/professional goals and dreams. There are no academic requirements other than acceptance into an institution at the time of award disbursal in the spring. Do not feel obligated to include any details you don’t feel comfortable sharing. Your voice, your story, deserves to be heard. Tell it.
