Many students are familiar with the struggles of drug and alcohol addiction.
It can be difficult to stay in school and be successful when spiraling down a dangerous path through addiction. Those who have persevered through addiction and seek further education, deserve to be celebrated. Living a sober life and putting education to use, can bring numerous experiences and chances to grow as an individual. The Trudgers Fund will support students as they strive for success in school and in their personal lives after struggling with addiction.
This scholarship is for high school seniors and undergraduate students who have experienced their own struggles with alcohol and drug addiction and are seeking higher education to enhance their lives. To apply, write about your experience with addiction and how you’d like to use your higher education to help others.
Describe your experience with addiction, highlighting what it was like for you, what happened, and how your life has changed since being sober. How would you like to use your education to help others?
