NEPG Elliott Smolensky Scholarship Program
Thanks to the generous contributions of our members NEPG is able to offer a limited number of scholarships, which are awarded at the discretion of NEPG. To be eligible you must be in early recovery or coming back from a relapse, be under-employed due to the consequences of addiction, and not be a previous scholarship recipient.
The NEPG Scholarship Program was renamed the Elliott Smolensky Scholarship Program in memory of Elliott, a long-time member of NEPG who provided unwavering support for new NEPG members, particularly those who are in early recovery.
Scholarships cover registration fees and CME's. Each recipient is responsible for the costs of transportation, non-included meals, and extracurricular activities. Depending on donations received, additional scholarships may become available for lodging (room shared with one or more scholarship recipients, or with their spouse/significant other, if applicable). Accommodations for dependent children will be in the room with their parent(s).
Recipients will be asked to assist with the conference. This is a great way to meet colleagues and become involved.
