New 2022 Awards

Late last year, it was announced that beginning in 2022, Bucks for Boards will award a total of one hundred $1,000 scholarships to 25 students each quarter, doubling the award amount for students.

“The cost of education, whether it's chiropractic or any institution, has gone up significantly and most people need to utilize financial aid to pay for it,” said Dr. Wayne Wolfson, President of NCMIC. “Still, many students come out of school with significant debt. Bucks for Boards is just another way for NCMIC to take care of our own. It’s a great example of how we assist of students as they start their own practices or begin their professional lives.”

NCMIC, in conjunction with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE), launched the Bucks for Boards program in 2020 to recognize the hard work and dedication of students working toward their Doctor of Chiropractic degree. All chiropractic students enrolled at a chiropractic college and DCs who graduated in the last six months are eligible to win.

Applying is easy:

  1. Students complete a quick online form
  2. Hit submit

No essays, no references or complicated financial aid documents are required. Winners are drawn at random from those who enter each entry period. Students can sign up once per entry period and are eligible to win one NCMIC Bucks for Boards scholarship annually. Winners will be notified by email and/or phone.

NCMIC is taking care of future DCs in other ways, too. 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 and a new website, launched in early 2021, gives students access to in-depth information about business, marketing, practice structures, finances and more. Starting Into Practice also has a supporting Facebook group where students can share ideas, ask questions and get advice from experts.
