As part of our ongoing efforts to make a positive contribution to the community, the Beachway team is committed to assisting students in their educational pursuits.

Any student who fits the eligibility requirements above can apply for the Beachway Scholarship [https://beachway.com/scholarship]. To enter, social work students must write a minimum 500-word essay or submit a 2-minute video addressing the following question:
How has the addiction of someone you know (yourself, family member, a friend) impacted you directly?
To apply, students must submit their essay as a PDF, Word, or .mpg file, and include their full name, contact information, affiliated institution, and desired degree/certification. To enter, send your essay to [email protected]

Selection Process and Notification
The Beachway scholarship committee will review all essays and videos received, and choose two winners for both 2019 academic semesters. Once the winners have been determined, they will be contacted directly by Beachway.
The awarded scholarship funds are to be used for tuition and books only. Once awarded, a check will be written to the recipient’s school of choice and credited for academic costs.
