NDNR Announces Winners of the 6th Annual Student Writer’s Scholarship

 In Naturopathic News

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 launched the NDNR Student Writer’s Scholarship in 2013.

NDNR Student Writer’s Scholarship

Now the time has come to announce the winners of the annual Naturopathic Doctor News & Review Student Writer’s Scholarship. Those who placed first or second will be published in the April – July issues; Honorable Mentions will be published in the August – December issues of NDNR. This year, 11 applicants from each of the 7 CNME accredited institutions applied.

Students were required to shadow and partner with a practicing naturopathic doctor as part of the scholarship, providing them with insight and guidance in the profession. Applicants’ submissions were judged on a rubric by our scholarship committee in 4 areas: purpose, content, organization, and creativity. The competition was strong as all applicants submitted impressive work.
