Our aim is to help as many people as possible find the correct treatment for their addiction – whether misuse of alcohol or other drugs, eating disorders or behavioural addictions such as gambling.

We are offering 2 scholarships of £2000 each for the academic year 2020/2021 to undergraduate or postgraduate (not post-doctoral) students studying addiction or any other relevant healthcare subject.

  • Mental Health

  • Substance Misuse
  • Any other subject in the caring/health sector


To apply for the scholarship, please submit a written article of between 800 to 1000 words with your ideas to improve national health and wellbeing, and if possible, in relation to addiction or substance abuse.

This could be anything from government policy changes like implementing safe drug rooms, to corporate programmes like free fruit and veg, to third sector initiatives. Any concepts you write about should be feasible, but you have creative freedom.

The directors of NATH Ltd will choose what they deem to be the most imaginative and meaningful entry based on creating a healthier society and greater wellbeing for all.

The winning entries will be published on our website.

The closing date for applications is 1st November 2020.
