The Recovery Village Health Care Scholarship

We are offering a $1,000 award to students pursuing a health-related degree program who have been personally affected by addiction. 
Recovery Village Health Care Scholarship:

2018/19 Minority Teacher Scholarship 

It is a one-time award of $1,000.  
Applications must be emailed no later than April 1, 2019.  
Please note two important things: 

1.  This scholarship is for those minority students going into teacher training and not other fields of study.

2.  This is for current MASPA member districts only.  Others will not be considered this year, but with the hopes they will join MASPA soon.

Minority Teacher Scholarship is a leading senior care resource for family caregivers seeking information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses and other loved ones. We have been featured on the Administration for Community Living, AARP, Forbes, and is referenced by many governmental agencies and organizations across the internet.

To help support high school and college students taking on the role of caregiver for aging loved ones, we have made available scholarships that can provide financial assistance. You can read more about our work here:
