***The scholarship for the May start classes is now CLOSED. There will be scholarships available for the September start classes coming soon. Stay tuned!***
The Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) offers a partial scholarship opportunity through the Jennifer Pecot Scholarship Fund, awarded to students interested in enrolling in either the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner or Nutritional Therapy Consultant courses.
We are honored to offer this scholarship in memory of Jennifer Pecot, who we unexpectedly lost in 2017. She was an amazing instructor who inspired and educated many members of our community. To carry on her legacy, this scholarship is dedicated to supporting students who are aligned with our mission of redefining health by nourishing, educating, and connecting individuals and communities. The scholarship prize awarded will be half of the tuition of the program of your choice: $2700 for the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner program OR $2700 for the Nutritional Therapy Consultant program.
January 8th: Scholarship application opens.
February 15th: Deadline to turn in completed scholarship application. Applications must be received by 5pm PST to be considered.
March 1st: Recipients will be selected and notified.
April 5th: Recipients must have the remainder of tuition paid in full in order to be registered. Those who do not have their tuition paid by April 5th will forfeit their scholarship and it will be awarded to another applicant.
Through generous donations from alumni and friends, the Jennifer Pecot Scholarship Fund has afforded many students the opportunity to complete the NTC or NTP class who otherwise wouldn’t have.
We are grateful to these donors for helping to empower the next wave of nutritional professionals with the education they need to change the world. Learn more about how you can make a difference.

FINANCING THROUGH YOUR OWN BANK//CREDIT UNION
Another option is to pursue a personal loan through your own financial institution. All funds must be received by the NTA before you can be registered and reserve a spot in class.
Please note that if you are an international student, your tuition does need to be in USD, so your bank will need to do the conversion for you. Any conversion/transaction fees are not the responsibility of the NTA.

Financing for the NTP Australia class is available from Auswide Bank. For more information, visit the NTA Australia site.
Currently, we are not working directly with any specific financial institutions in Canada. Personal loans through your own financial institution are accepted.
