1000 Friends of NCNM Scholarship

The National College of Natural Medicine is proud to announce the availability of the 1000 Friends of NCNM. This scholarship is made possible through the generosity of many donors to the 1000 Friends of NCNM Fund. 

This need-based scholarship will be awarded to current students in any degree program at NCNM. All scholarships determined by financial need are based on needs analysis results from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). 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 with the National College of Natural Medicine School Code of B07624.


All current full–time students entering their second year or higher in good academic standing may apply. Finalists will be selected based on a record of outstanding academic achievement, leadership, service to the college and community, dedication to the profession of natural medicine, and a commitment to honoring and celebrating diversity.


This scholarship will be awarded to two students in the amount of $3,000 for 2014–2015 academic year.

Graduating students and students not already enrolled at NCNM are ineligible to apply for this scholarship.
