There are several institutional scholarships available each semester for qualified new students and once a year for continuing students. Scholarships are made available through ACAOM’s affiliated foundation, the American Foundation of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AFAOM).
Scholarships will be considered on two factors: first come first serve in completed applications and merit.
All applicants who complete their application by the posted scholarship deadline are automatically considered for New Student Scholarships. The total award pot varies annually. Individual award amounts are based on merit and over-all strength of the application, and weighed against all other eligible applications. Due to funds being limited, not all eligible applicants can receive monetary awards. Disbursements are applied to the students tuition account and can not be redeemed for cash. Award amounts are disbursed over the first few semesters, and not given as a lump sum. Some students may receive first semester textbooks in lieu of monetary awards. Scholarship recipients must enroll in 9 or more credits (MAOM) / 7 or more credits (MIWM & MIHL) per semester in order to receive the disbursement for that semester.
If you wish to be considered for scholarships, it is strongly recommended that you complete the application early to ensure that funds are still available.
