Greetings Olympians and Olympic Families!
In the spirit of the Olympic Movement and in partnership with ten of our Chiropractic Institutions, we at FICS are honored to support education for Olympians worldwide by providing the “World Olympian Scholarship Program” to Olympians who are academically qualified and interested in pursuing a career in Chiropractic.
Olympians selected for this program will serve as an Ambassador for the Olympic Movement and for Chiropractic as an advocate for how the profession fundamentally enhanced the Olympian’s athletic pursuit.
Currently, there are 10 schools participating in this program, 9 in the US and 1 in Canada and to date 6 schools have signed an MOU with FICS and the Olympian. All offer a full academic scholarship with the exception of the school in Canada, whereby they offer a 1/2 scholarship. We are grateful to all the participating institutions. We will continue to approach additional chiropractic institutions to join the 10 now providing scholarships.
To date, a number of Olympians have graduated and now are seeing patients including athletes and Olympians. Those graduating are from Jamaica, Australia, Canada and the US. We have additional potential candidates wishing to enter the program from Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe.
We look forward to helping you through this application process.
Dr Jay Greenstein
Chair, World Olympians Scholarship Program
