Dear Peer Recovery Professional:

Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Providers of New York State (ASAP) and the New York Certification Board (NYCB) are pleased to offer OASAS-funded scholarships that can be used to cover the cost of application and exam fees for candidates wanting to become a Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) or a Certified Recovery Peer Advocate-Provisional(CRPA-P). 

We are now accepting applications for scholarships from candidates interested in becoming certified as a CRPA or CRPA-P, or renewing their existing CRPA certification. We can provide scholarship funding as follows:
  • CRPA Application Fee 
  • CRPA-Provisional Application Fee 
  • CRPA Exam Fee 
  • CRPA Upgrade Fee 
  • CRPA Renewal Fee
Applying for a scholarship is easy:

Step 1: Click 'Continue' below to complete the online scholarship application.
Step 2: We will notify you by e-mail when we receive your scholarship application and let you know if you have been approved to receive a scholarship.
Step 3: Complete an application for certification or renewal when you have completed the requirements.

Once the NYCB receives your application for CRPA or CRPA-P certification, your scholarship will be activated and your fee waived if the application is complete. Applicants who submit a completed certification application will have their scholarship activated before applicants that have submitted an incomplete application for certification. In other words, scholarships will be activated on a first come, first served basis.

ASAP and our NYCB look forward to receiving your scholarship application and to helping you through the certification process.


Elisabeth Kranson, Cathie Gifford and Ruth Riddick - Your NYCB Certification Team
