Approximately 6,400 chiropractic students take the chiropractic board exams each year. To support chiropractic students and help defray the costs of these exams, NCMIC, in conjunction with NBCE, created the Bucks for Boards scholarship program.
A total of 200 scholarships, in the amount of $500 each, will be given by NCMIC in 2020.
“NCMIC is committed to the success of all chiropractors, and it starts with the students. We know how hard they work in their chiropractic studies. We also know the costs of taking board exams can be expensive for students,” said Wayne Wolfson, President of NCMIC. “We are happy to support them by offering Bucks for Boards scholarships. We hope students take advantage of this opportunity.”
Four times during the year, 50 students will be awarded Bucks for Boards scholarships. The names of the winners will be randomly drawn from those who enter each entry period. Students may sign up once per entry period, and can only win one NCMIC Bucks for Boards scholarship in 2020. Winners will be notified by email and/or phone.
These scholarships are just one of many ways NCMIC reaches out to students. The Starting Into Practice® Program has held on-campus presentations for over 20 years to help prepare students for the transition from school into practice. A new website, startingintopractice.com, and Facebook group were recently launched to give students access to in-depth information about business, marketing, practice structures, finances and more.
