NDNR Student Writer’s Scholarship

As a forum for the naturopathic community, participation in Naturopathic Doctor News and Review (NDNR) has often been a vantage point for growth, communication and new collaborations within and amongst the naturopathic community. NDNR embraces what is unique to naturopathic medicine in the broader scope of natural medicine. It is in this spirit that we launch the NDNR Student Writer’s Scholarship.

NDNR in partnership with Integrative Therapeutics is pleased to unveil the NDNR Student Writer’s Scholarship to all students enrolled in CNME-accredited naturopathic graduate programs between May 1st and Sept 6th.
