About the Scholarship

The Alcohol.org Behavioral Health Academic Scholarship Program was started to encourage college students to make a difference and inspire change in the health field. We recognize that students who are working on behavioral health degrees face significant academic and economic challenges. This financial award helps students finish their degree and lessen their stress about how to pay for it.
