Thank you for your interest in the ICARE Scholarship Program. This program was created to make our training accessible to people who demonstrate an active involvement in serving those in recovery, or with stand-out achievement in the area of recovery support and who may also demonstrate financial need.

Because we have live training instructors, copyrighted material and administrative expenses related to the operation of our programs we do not offer 100% scholarships, but incremental price reductions on our programs while still allowing for students to participate in funding their education and allowing us to pay for the expenses related to offering scholarship recipients their training.

For applicants who demonstrate merit and financial need we offer 25%, 50%, and 75% scholarships on the following credential programs:

  • Certified Professional Recovery Coach Dual (CPRC Dual)
  • Certified Professional Recovery Coach (CPRC)
  • Certified Professional Coach (CPC)
  • Certified Facilitator of Addiction Awareness for HR Professionals (CFAA-HR)
  • Certified Facilitator of Addiction Awareness (CFAA)
