    • You may apply for up to 3 scholarships, but cannot apply for a scholarship you received in the 2019-2020 academic year.

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.

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 with the National University of Natural Medicine School Code of B07624.

Students who received scholarships for 2018-2019 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.
