Addictin Resource Scholarship
Through the years, millions of lives have been damaged due to drug abuse and addiction. In the US, there are an estimated 3.6 million people who are addicted to some form of drug, whether for recreation or by prescription. These include people who accidentally become dependent, and eventually addicted to painkillers like Opioids.
With the AddictionResource Scholarship, we want to challenge current and prospective college students to share their story on how we can make the world addiction-free.
Every year, we select three winners in the essay contest. The winners will receive awards toward their tuition at their respective colleges and universities. The winning applicants for first, second and third place receive scholarships in the amounts of $2,000, $700 and $300, respectively. The scholarship awards may only be used to pay for college tuition and/or education-related expenses. There are no costs associated with submitting an application for this scholarship.
First Prize — $2,000
Second Prize — $700
Third Prize — $300
Additional Selection Criteria
The AddictionResource.com Scholarship essay contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are 18 years old or older. Applicants must be accepted to, or currently enrolled in a college or university located within the United States or in the District of Columbia. Only one (1) submission per student is allowed.
Applicants must submit a typed essay (1,000–1,500 words) answering the following questions:
- Why do you see drug abuse and addiction as a problem for individuals and society?
- What is the best way for society to overcome the issue of drug abuse, and why?
- What would an addiction-free world look like, and how would it differ from the world today?
- What message do you have for current addicts?
The essay must include the word count and be signed with a full name (both first and last name), along with the applicant’s email address, phone number, and permanent address.
The winning applicants will be determined based on the essay content, style and originality. Judges are looking for logically organized and well-supported essays.
