Discounts and Scholarships

Our training scholarship program is for individuals who would otherwise be unable to participate in our GSF 201:  Facilitator Training course due to limited funds, financial hardships, etc.

Upon application and approval, scholarships are awarded using a sliding-fee scale for a reduced registration fee of either $50, $35, or $20 based upon the level of individual need.

IMPORTANT NOTE: OUR TRAINING SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM IS INTENDED FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL BE PROVIDING A COMMUNITY SMART RECOVERY MEETING THAT IS OPEN AND AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. Individuals with professional designations or those wishing to provide a “closed” meeting available only to specific individuals (e.g., patients, clients, etc.), payment of the full training registration fee is expected.

Due to the limited scholarship funds available, you may be offered a scholarship other than what was applied for. If such occurs, you have the choice to accept the scholarship being offered or not.

Upon notice of a scholarship award, a promo code will be included in the notification email that you'll enter in the online Training Registration Form, which will discount the registration fee to the amount of the awarded training scholarship.
