2012–2013 Diipali Barrett Scholarship

Diipli BarrettThis scholarship was established to honor the life and work of Diipali (Deborah) Barrett, ND. “Diipali,” Dr. Barrett’s Sanskrit name, means a Collection of Light. Dr. Barrett, an NCNM alumna and faculty member, was dedicated to the building of a social and cultural framework of equality that promotes ecological awareness – a framework that supports the fulfillment of the mental, physical, and spiritual needs of all.

This need–based scholarship will be awarded to a current student in the ND, MSiMR or Dual–Track Program. 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 FASFA application online with the National College of Natural Medicine School Code of B07624.
