Dear Scholarship Applicant:
Thank you for your recent scholarship application, and for your interest in the Peer Recovery profession.  Please note the current status of CRPA scholarship support offered through the New York Certification Board, as follows. 
OASAS-funded CRPA Scholarships (New York State)
NYCB has received more than 700 requests for OASAS-funded CRPA scholarships since the program began on May 1, 2017. We have awarded scholarships to more than half of these applicants. Due to this unexpectedly high volume of applications, OASAS has now directed NYCB to discontinue training scholarships, internships and other support.  Therefore, we regret that your application cannot be processed at this time, but will remain pending until we receive notice from OASAS of any further available funding. 
DOHMH-funded CRPA Scholarships (New York City only) 
If you live in any of New York City's five boroughs, we are still accepting and processing scholarship requests for CRPA or CRPA-Provisional application fees, exam fees, or CRPA renewal fees.  These scholarships are being funded by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH).
Please also check back with our website where updates are posted regularly (

Thank you!
