Scholarships were established, with the support of the Washington Healthcare Authority and other partners, to encourage and support participation by professionals who are, or have applied to become, Washington State certified gambling counselors and hold a current certificate or license issued by the state of Washington to provide mental health or chemical dependency treatment services to the public.

Scholarships are also available for Prevention Specialists, Peer/Recovery Coaches, and undergraduate/graduate students or professors/counselors in accredited Washington State college and university behavioral health, addictions, and counseling programs. Scholarships are available for all ECPG-sponsored workshops and conferences.

Support a professional development scholarship and make an important difference for others.

Scholarships help professionals to help those in need, by eliminating a financial barrier to get necessary training.

A variety of Sponsorship opportunities are available for those who want to help donate to the scholarship fund, or sponsor trainings directly.

This is a very special opportunity for you or your company to support deserving individuals who may not otherwise be able to attend a training or conference. Your support can help a student, a community member, a Recovery Coach, an educator, a prevention specialist, or a treatment provider with their registration fees.
