Landmark Students of Recovery Scholarship

Landmark Recovery awards two $500 scholarships to college students each semester. It’s just one of the ways Landmark helps people reach their full potential.

Thousands of students on college campuses across the nation struggle with addiction while managing class loads, social lives, and in some cases holding down part-time jobs. It is estimated that more than 30% of college students who use drugs or alcohol meet the criteria for a substance use disorder, and according to the U.S. Surgeon General, only 1 in 10 of these individuals will wind up seeking treatment. 

College can often be the first time that individuals are free from parental supervision, placed in a high-stress academic environment coupled with peer pressure and a high degree of personal responsibility for balancing work, school, and academics. It can be difficult for college students to speak openly about these issues, let alone find the support and services they need to stay sober and successful in their college careers.

Scholarship Qualifications

As an incoming or current college student, you have a unique, first-hand glimpse of how substance abuse can impact your own life or the lives of your peers. The college setting is a crucial stepping stone in physical, mental, social, and career development, so it is important that institutions are equipped to adequately tackle the issue of substance abuse. To apply, you are required to write a 1,000-word minimum essay on the following prompt:

“What does substance abuse look like on your campus, and what steps do you think your administration (or any college administration) could take to address this issue in a meaningful way?”
