The MMMA will be awarded each year on the anniversary of Matthew’s passing. The successful candidate will be notified by the SACM program staff. The winner’s name and accomplishment will not be shared with anyone unless the recipient wants the information shared to help others.
Award Amount: $1,000
To qualify for this award, you must be a CLAC member who has completed a drug or alcohol treatment program, is cleared for work, and demonstrates a solid commitment to recovery and helping others who face similar challenges. The winner is expected to use the money for training or to further enhance their recovery efforts.
Applicants and Nominations
To apply for the scholarship, please send a letter expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the letter, please let us know:
- how long you have been substance free,
- the changes that you’ve made in your life as a result of being sober and clean,
- what you do to help others who struggle with addiction, and
- why you think you would be a suitable candidate to receive the scholarship monies.
People familiar with a CLAC member’s sobriety can also nominate that member for the award by sending in a similar letter about the person you are nominating.
Applications can be submitted any time, but the deadline for applications each year is September 30. Email submissions to the Substance Abuse Case Management Team at email@example.com.
The successful candidate will be chosen by random draw of all qualified nominees.
