Rehab 4 Addiction assists people seeking drug and alcohol rehab services across the globe. We are also happy to assist young people looking to enter this field via our Scholarship program.
To further this aim, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to those looking to pursue an education in healthcare or any subject that’s medical-related.
To register your interest in obtaining the $1,000 scholarship, you must submit to us a short 500-word essay. This essay must outline why you wish to pursue a career in a health-related area. Your submission may take the form of a personal narrative.
Alternatively, you could outline what you learned when undertaking practical work experience in this area.
You could also consider writing about a personal recovery story you have experienced either yourself or within your family.
Submissions must be submitted to us by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Friday, December 13, 2019.
A $1,000 scholarship is made available to at least one student who has been accepted onto a degree programme that's health-related.
Some example areas of study include:
- Emergency medicine
- Social work
The above is a non-exhaustive list of examples. If you are unsure whether you qualify, please contact us today for guidance.
Once it is clear you meet the criteria above, you must then submit a 500-word essay outlining the reasons why you are passionate about your area of study, emphasising why you wish to help people suffering from substance abuse and/or mental health problems.
The subject matter that forms the body of your submissions may be inspired or based upon either professional experience or personal experience.
