Apply for a Scholarship

Agate provides scholarships for mental health, behavioral health and addiction treatment.


We call the monies we give scholarships because self-knowledge is education. The work of recovery requires personal investment in growth and education.

  • Scholarships may be provided for partial amounts requested.

We are a financially transparent organization, meaning we think you should know how we use your donations.  Our targets are to use 50-90% of all donations to make scholarships available to those in need, and keep our expenses well below 25%. Some proceeds may be used to establish The Agate Foundation Trust, in order that we may keep providing scholarships in perpetuity. If you have question, please contact us.
