Scholarships Offered by The Watershed

For two decades, The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs has been providing comprehensive treatment to help both addicts and alcoholics begin the process of recovery.

Not only does The Watershed believe in restoring the lives of individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction, but The Watershed also believes in rewarding and encouraging students who wish to advance their education in fields such as Health Care and Addiction Science. This is why The Watershed offers several scholarships to accredited colleges and universities.

The Watershed is also dedicated to helping recovering addicts and alcoholics during their educational ventures, which is why another scholarship that is offered by The Watershed is rewarded to individuals who have been in recovery for at least one year.

If you are interested in learning more about the specific scholarships that are offered by The Watershed, then please view each scholarship page for more information:

How to Apply

There are eligibility requirements for each of the scholarships as well as a required essay submission.

Where can I find the eligibility and submission requirements?

You can find the specific details by clicking the above link(s) for the scholarships you are interested in. Please read the specific instructions for applying to the scholarship of your choice on the designated page listed above.

Can I apply if I live in another state?

Students from any state may apply, but they must meet the eligibility requirements for the particular scholarship in which they are applying.

Would anything disqualify me from being eligible for the scholarships?

If you do not follow the instructions and provide all of the required documents and information, you will be automatically disqualified. You must be a United States citizen or permanent resident. In addition, you cannot be a current or previous employee of The Watershed due to it being a conflict of interest.

Do all of my documents need to be submitted together?

While we do prefer that all documents be sent in together, it is okay if we receive documents, like the letters of recommendation and school transcripts, separate – as long as all documents are sent in and received by the deadline.

When will I hear back about if I have been awarded a scholarship?

Due to a high volume of applicants, you will only hear back from a member of The Watershed if you are awarded the scholarship.

Is there a phone number I can call if I have questions?

Please do not call The Watershed directly or contact through webchat to ask questions about our scholarships, as we offer a 24-Hour Help Line for crisis and emergency support related to substance abuse. These methods of contact are designated for individuals and patients in crisis.

Is there an email address that I can send questions to?

If you have any questions regarding these scholarships, please feel free to email

Is there an electronic application?

At this time, there is no electronic application.

Where should I mail my scholarship application?

All submissions for scholarships must be mailed to:

The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs, Inc.
ATTN: Marketing Department/Scholarship Team
200 Congress Park Dr.
Suite 100
Delray Beach, FL 33445
