Who is Eligible

All scholarships that are determined by financial need will be based on Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) needs analysis results. All students receiving financial aid will have all scholarships included as part of their award package. We encourage all students to complete the FAFSA application online atwww.fafsa.ed.gov with the National College of Natural Medicine School Code of B07624.

Students who received scholarships for 2014-2015 are ineligible to apply again for the same scholarships this year – but may apply for others. Students may apply for as many scholarships as three, but only one scholarship per student will be awarded.

How to Apply

To be considered for any of these scholarships:

  • Complete the online 2015-2016 NCNM Scholarship Application
  • Include your answers to any scholarship–specific questions for the scholarship(s) you are applying for, along with all appropriate documents in your submission.
  • Submit the application form, your scholarship–specific essays and all other documents to NCNM by the application deadline: Monday, July 20, 2015, 10:00 p.m.

Selected students will be notified by letter. Late or incomplete submissions will be rejected.

Scholarship Award and Financial Aid

Federal financial aid recipients could have other aid reduced to accommodate any scholarship(s) received. Scholarship funds will be divided into three equal installments and disbursed to the recipient in fall, winter and spring terms. Scholarship recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress as a condition for receiving a scholarship. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the scholarship. This policy applies to both internal and external scholarship funding sources.

When Awarded a Scholarship

All scholarship attendees are expected to write a thank you letter to the donor (if appropriate). Letters should be delivered to the Advancement Office for forwarding to the donor(s). Students and donors will be invited to an event in their honor.
