Among the recipients of the latest round of scholarship awards announced by NCMIC Insurance Company were three Cleveland University-Kansas City College of Chiropractic students: Nathan High, Tri-10, Mckenzie Kerner, Tri-7, and Chelsey Holstrom, Tri-6.
The NCMIC scholarship, widely known as the Bucks for Boards program, was created in 2020 in conjunction with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE). Each of the 20 NCMIC scholarship winners will receive a $500 award, and scholarships are presented four times a year. Students use the award to help meet the cost of NBCE chiropractic board exams. A total of 200 scholarships will be awarded to 50 students each quarter in 2021, according to NCMIC.
Unlike other scholarship award programs, chiropractic college students may apply once per entry period. A student may only receive one NCMIC Bucks for Boards scholarship annually.
“It’s no secret NCMIC has provided exceptional support and excellent services to chiropractic profession since the company’s founding 75 years ago,” CUKC President Carl S. Cleveland III, said. “The company’s creation of a student scholarship program with the NBCE shows NCMIC continues to be innovative and is a strong supporter of the next generation of chiropractic practitioners.”
NCMIC was founded in 1946 by doctors of chiropractic to offer malpractice insurance to doctors of chiropractic. Today, NCMIC is the largest provider of chiropractic malpractice insurance in the nation and offers business and personal insurance, equipment loans, credit card processing, business credit cards, and premium financing.
“It’s always a thrill for us to share the names of our Bucks for Boards scholarship recipients,” Dr. Wayne Wolfson, President of NCMIC, said. “We are immensely proud of the Bucks for Boards program.”
Wolfson said the Bucks for Boards program complement its Starting Into Practice Program. That program, which helps students with the transition from chiropractic college to chiropractic practice, has been presented on campuses for more than 20 years.
