Collegiate Recovery Community providing scholarships for those in recovery

The Marshall University Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) is establishing three new recovery scholarship opportunities for students for the summer 2021 sessions.

Students applying for the scholarships must have at least a 2.0 GPA; be actively pursuing recovery, enrolled as a part-time or full-time Marshall University student and participate in the Marshall University Collegiate Recovery Community. Two scholarships are available for $500 and one scholarship for $200. Eligible students are asked to apply by completing the application form on the Marshall University Collegiate Recovery website at

Applications need to be submitted along with a letter of recommendation to Amy Saunders by e-mail at The deadline for application submission is May 21, 2021. Saunders is the managing director of the Marshall University Center of Excellence for Recovery.

“These scholarships are a great opportunity for students actively involved in our recovery community to gain a little help in continuing their education here at Marshall University,” Saunders said.

A selection committee composed of the Marshall University Collegiate Recovery Advisory Board will review and select the scholarship recipients. The board plans to award the scholarships by May 28.

The Marshall University Collegiate Recovery Community provides a supportive community in which students in recovery can achieve academic success while participating in college. Programs at the CRC are designed to empower students to reach their full potential and help encourage and promote academic, personal and professional goals. The program offers a wide array of resources for any student looking to make a positive change in their life.
