Apply or Nominate: Scholarship Opportunity for Individuals in Long-Term Recovery
The Stephenie Jesi Scholarships for Individuals in Long-Term Recovery are in loving memory of Stephenie Jesi, a Gloucester Angel Program participant who sadly passed away after a long and courageous battle with substance use disorder (SUD).
Stephenie was passionate about helping her friends who were experiencing the same barriers that she was facing in fighting the disease of SUD. In honor of her selfless nature and spirit of giving, her family wants to keep her spirit alive by helping others who are struggling through this scholarship opportunity.
Three individuals who have been in long-term recovery for 3 or more years will be chosen to receive a $1,000 scholarship. In an effort to remove barriers to support recovery, these funds can be used for education, housing, transportation, childcare, or debt relief.
