Scholarships and bursaries

Scholarships and bursaries are the most direct way to support the success of our students. Financing a doctoral education is challenging for many students. This allows students more time to focus on their education and contributions to the community.

Support our student leaders

The voice of CCNM students is represented on campus through the Naturopathic Student Association. Support our student leaders by sponsoring one of the following events and initiatives.

  • Awards to student leaders. Students vote for outstanding peers who are recognized during the closing ceremony of the Naturopathic Student Association each April.

  • Unity Summits. These two-day off-campus retreats provide an opportunity for the incoming classes (September and January) to become acquainted with each other and be welcomed into the community of CCNM students and faculty.

  • Health Weeks. Specific weeks with health-focused learning and activities, such as mental health, pediatrics, global health, and more.

  • Convocation dinner. Held each May for the graduating glass.

  • Student formal. Held annually to celebrate the end of a successful school year.

  • Inter-professional sporting events. Several sports-related events are hosted and attended by students each year, with opportunities to engage and connect with other health professions.

For more information about supporting our students, please contact Frances Makdessian at or (416) 498-1255 x 226.

These scholarships and bursaries really make a difference in students’ lives and progress in naturopathic medicine. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and generosity in helping the future generation of NDs.”
