Davis Lamson Scholarship – Application Now Closed


The Davis Lamson Scholarship Fund helps bring students, residents and new ND graduates (1st and 2nd year) to the Annual OncANP Conference.

Dr. Lamson has been a major influence on the practice of naturopathic oncology and a huge supporter of the OncANP since its inception. In naming this scholarship in his honor we hope to recognize his contributions to the field.  Dr. Lamson has always set the example by helping educate our students and new doctors and facilitating their entrance into the practice of naturopathic oncology.


(Note: You must be an active OncANP member to apply.  Scholarships are open to students, residents and first and second-year naturopathic doctors only.)

All funds donated will go directly to registration fees, minus the 3% that PayPal charges.  All funds will be entered into a general fund and how much we raise will determine how many scholarships we are able to award.  Any extra funds that either surpass the number of applicants will carry over to the next year’s scholarship.

We thank you for your consideration in paying it forward to help our next generation continue to expand their knowledge base.

Attendee Refund Policy: 
Advanced registrants unable to attend will receive a refund of rate paid; minus a $50 processing charge, only when a written request is submitted to the OncANP at oncanp@gmail.com and received 30 days prior to the start of the event. Refunds will not be available after this date; no exceptions. If you are unable to attend, you may substitute a colleague for your entire registration. Absolutely no refunds will be issued for no-shows.
