Even if you successfully finish an addiction treatment program, many individuals find themselves relapsing because they don’t have the skills necessary to maintain a sober lifestyle. A sober living program can help you gain these skills, but you may be afraid that you can’t afford this program. Fortunately, when you apply for the scholarship from Living Amends, you have assistance in paying for the support you need. We’ll help you fund your first three months living in one of our sober living partners. To apply for one of our scholarships, complete the form below. If you have any questions, we invite you to complete our contact form.

Application Process

Living Amends Scholarships are limited and highly competitive so please fill out application completely before hitting SUBMIT!

Unfortunately, we are unable to honor all applications with a scholarship.

We only give to individuals who are serious about their sobriety and have personally already invested in their long-term recovery by attending a residential treatment facility. Also, each recipient must agree to donate back 25% of the total awarded amount within a year’s time. Our contract has to be signed and returned before the first month funds are given to the sober living facilities.

  1. Fill out application below, if you are applying for the first time then you submit for a 1st month’s application
  2. You must have gone to a residential treatment and are going to a vetted sober living to be eligible for a scholarship
  3. You have to agree to re-pay 25% of awarded amount within a year so we can continue to help the next suffering alcoholic
  4. These scholarships are competitive and limited and are privately funded.
  5.  Each application is reviewed monthly at the end of the month
  6. We check references at treatment centers and sober livings
  7. You must go to weekly meetings and actively be working the steps with a sponsor
  8. Submit weekly progress reports

  • Please respond to the following questions in detail. All fields required.

What Will the Scholarship Pay?

At no point while working with Living Amends will we pay for the entirety of your stay at a sober living facility. Scholarships will pay:

  • 75% of first sober living month’s rent
  • 50% of second sober living month’s rent
  • 25% of third sober living month’s rent

We believe that when you are paying for at least a portion of your stay at a facility, you’re more invested in the recovery process. However, we want to ensure that you’re getting the support you need throughout the treatment process, so we’ll continue to work with you throughout your stay.
