SOAR Natick Grants & Scholarships
The disease of addiction often robs individuals of the financial resources to afford the support services they need. Grants for 2023 have been awarded! New grant requests will be accepted beginning January 1, 2024. We are thrilled to have provided financial assistance to many individuals working on their recovery.
SOAR Natick awards scholarships to graduating Natick High Seniors whose lives have been personally impacted by Substance Use Disorder and/or who plan to pursue the education, prevention, and treatment of addiction or a related field.
Experiences related to opioid use and demonstrated financial need will be key considerations in the awarding of these scholarships.
Applications, timing, and due dates are announced by the Guidance Office at Natick High School each school year.
SOAR Natick recognizes professional support, educational opportunities and assistance with unexpected expenses as an integral part in the recovery process.
