A limited number of partial scholarships are offered for each Day of Recovery (DOR) event. The amount of scholarship money available is dependent upon existing funds within the MaleSurvivor Weekend of Recovery Scholarship Fund. We do not grant 100% scholarships for any DOR; we require that all participants pay at least a portion of the registration fee. This enables MaleSurvivor to make more scholarships available to more participants.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you may access the scholarship application form here.

MaleSurvivor provides critical resources to male survivors of sexual trauma and all their partners in recovery by building communities of Hope, Healing, & Support.

  3. I give myself permission to connect to loving, affirmative, strong, sensitive, accepting men and women in my community.
  4. I release and forgive myself for any responsibility I have accepted in the past for my abuse.
  5. The abuser (s) from the past chose to hurt me; I will stop repeating the lie that it just happened to me.
  6. Offering myself daily compassion is necessary for my healing and growth.
  7. I commit to connecting to the boy inside me today so we can play, laugh and experience joy together, even if just for a minute or two.
  8. I believe deep inside me I possess the ability to face the truth of my abuse and to learn to use new tools for healing.
  9. I have the right and the ability to speak the truth of my abuse and deserve to be heard, understood, believed and supported.
