Those interested in entering to win can submit their applications online on the Banyan Treatment Center website permitted they meet all of the scholarship criteria. Mike and his wife Lauren will select one recipient who will be announced on Christmas Eve — the four-year anniversary of Mike’s sobriety.

Mike announced that both he and Lauren had been named official recovery advocates for the treatment center in October, a month after he was released from prison after serving an eight-month sentence for tax evasion crimes. 

As ‘Jersey Shore’ fans may remember, Mike has been sober since 2015 after checking into rehab for the second time for his addiction to prescription pain killers. His first stint in rehab was back in 2012. 

Since then, Mike has been an advocate for sober living, and often posts about his journey to getting clean from drugs and alcohol. Earlier this week, he posted a photo of himself to Instagram, proclaiming “Celebrating 4 Years Clean & Sober.”

“You are an inspiration honey,” Lauren wrote in the comment section of the photo. “So proud to call you my husband.”

“So proud of you brother,” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi wrote.
