Funding Your Education

Scholarship Opportunities

NCM is currently offering scholarships for aspiring midwives committed to working in underserved communities.  We recognize the value of providing opportunities for students from underserved populations to study midwifery, as they ultimately will be the best prepared to serve their communities and to help bridge stark and disturbing health disparities.  Please see our Scholarship page for more information.

Fundraising Through Crowdsourcing

Many NCM students have had great success “crowdfunding” which is asking for donations from friends, family, support groups (parenting, church, etc), businesses and the general public. This can be done with or without the use of an online website which can help facilitate donations and potentially reach a broader audience. If you choose to try and fundraise in this way we encourage you to make an information packet or flier to help potential donors understand what you will accomplish with the help of their donations items you might considering including are:

  • Length of the Program (2-5 years) 

  • What degree, certification and/or license you will receive at the end of your education. (ASM, BSM, MSM, PhD) (CPM, LM)

  • Cost of the Program (plus books and preceptor fees)

  • Benefits of this particular program (Flexibility, cost savings, ability to stay in your community, serve your community)

  • How being a midwife serves the world (health savings for society, increased mental and physical health of mothers, partners, infants, families)

  • Increased birth options (home, birth center)


Crowdfunding Sites:

  • GoFundMe

  • Upstart 

  • Scholar Match

  • CrowdfundEDU

  • CommonBond – CommonBond is a website that helps you to secure a student loan from a group of individual and institutional investors.

  • Sofi – Sofi is another P2P lending platform where you can secure a student loan from a group of accredited investors.

Private Loans

Students may also consider taking out a loan from a financial institution. NCM is happy to provide support for this.
