Palmer College Introduces New Scholarships for Incoming Main Campus Students

Palmer students are driven to succeed, and we’re committed to helping students do that. As we strive to grow the chiropractic profession, we want to make sure that the best and brightest can study at the Fountainhead, regardless of their financial situation.

Each year, Palmer College of Chiropractic awards approximately $4 million in scholarships – many of which are specifically designated for incoming students.

Palmer Main Campus Scholarships for Incoming Students

New in 2022, incoming Palmer College students applying to the Main Campus are automatically considered for the following scholarships based on the requirements outlined below.
