Financial Aid - Doctor of Chiropractic

Institutional Scholarships

National University offers a number of scholarships to students who have completed a minimum number of trimesters and who have at least a 2.0 or higher cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Unless otherwise noted, each scholarship applicant is required to submit a written narrative indicating the value of the scholarship in assisting the applicant in furthering his or her educational and/or practice goals. There may be additional requirements which must be met in order to qualify for a scholarship.

Applications are available in the Office of Financial Aid during the first month of each trimester, and are due back to the Office of Financial Aid by the close of the last business day of the month. As the scholarship funds come from endowment earnings, the earnings are distributed when there is sufficient income to award. Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $2,000. Enrolled students will be informed when to apply for these institutional scholarships. 

If you have questions about any of the scholarships listed or your eligibility for a particular scholarship program, contact the Office of Financial Aid.
