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 tribe. To carry on her legacy, this scholarship is dedicated to supporting students who are aligned with our mission of empowering individuals, cultivating a tribe, and healing the world. We will pick six scholarship winners for the February start cycle of classes. 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.


The application process includes an online form to complete and a video submission. Please note that you will not be able to submit your application without a link to your video essay. The scholarship committee will consider need as a component, but attitude, passion, and showing how you are currently helping in your community are the most important attributes we take into account. We want to know what problem you are dedicated to solving and what lights you up. Please let your creativity shine through in your video! Your video should be a maximum of two minutes answering this question:

What actions are you currently taking and what do you plan to do after gaining your certification to participate in the global paradigm shift toward sustainable food, holistic healing, balanced lifestyles, and authentic community relationships?

To share your video with us, please paste the link to your video in the appropriate field within the application. You can use any video sharing platform like Vimeo or YouTube or file sharing platform like Dropbox, but whichever you use, please make sure to set the permissions so that we can see the video.

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.

Financial Aid


Make tuition more affordable by spreading out payments for tuition and fees over time. There’s no interest, low enrollment surcharges and it’s easy to enroll! Simply submit an enrollment form found below, along with the course registration packet. There is an initial $400 finance charge to register you at the time of submittal (This is in addition to the tuition). You will then pay in either 2, 3, or 4 monthly installments leading up to the start of class (Dependent upon on which month you register). We do not offer payment installments to be made during the course of the program. Tuition must be paid in full before class starts in order to begin class.

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.

Currently, we are not working directly with any specific financial institutions in Canada. Personal loans through your own financial institution are accepted.
