The purpose of the NCMIC Scholarship in the amount of $5,000 is to enrich NUNM’s learning community by recognizing and supporting outstanding students from the Naturopathic Program within one year of graduation who identify in an underrepresented population that includes consideration of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, and socio-economic status. The scholarship will be evenly distributed over Fall, Winter and Spring terms from the Financial Aid Office.
