Asheville Recovery Annual Scholarship


At Rehab Carolinas, we are a recovery center, founded to address the needs for effective treatment through a program that strives to care for the whole individual: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.  We aim to ensure that all individuals, regardless of their socioeconomic status, have access to the same academic opportunities. Education is an important element upon which future leaders are made; however, we understand that there are high costs associated with attending college. Therefore, our treatment facility is creating a scholarship for students either currently enrolled or who plan to enroll in college.

What are the primary selection criteria?

Most scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit; thus, students distinguished by academic excellence, participation in extracurricular activities and involvement in community service have the best chance at receiving one of our firm’s awards.

Who should I ask to write my letter of recommendation?

Start by asking a teacher, employer or mentor. Do not ask a friend or family member. A letter of recommendation is similar to a professional reference; choose someone who can articulate your strengths and praise your accomplishments.

How do we choose a winner?

A winner must meet all of the standard criteria required for this scholarship but also distinguish himself/herself from the rest of the applicants. It is suggested for you to review our website, all of the scholarship criteria, and write a thoughtful, informative essay.

How quickly will I be notified?

The winner will be announced on January 31, 2020. All communications will occur via email. Please do not call our office.

Does the amount I receive in scholarships affect my eligibility for financial aid?

Typically. If you are awarded this scholarship, our firm will give the award directly to the school you are attending as credit towards your tuition and other eligible expenses. Your school may adjust your unmet financial need accordingly.
