MCF Scholarships: Changing Chiropractic Students’ Lives
-Kristine Dowell | Treasurer, Michigan Chiropractic Foundation
One of the most rewarding functions of the Michigan Chiropractic Foundation (MCF) is the funding of scholarships at five chiropractic colleges – Life, Logan, National, Palmer, and Sherman. These important scholarship programs help to benefit the chiropractic profession in our state by rewarding chiropractic students who pledge to return to Michigan to practice after graduation.
In June, we received a nice letter from Bonita Hazel, winner of the 2017 Michigan Chiropractic Foundation Fund Scholarship at Life, illustrating just how the MCF scholarship program can change the life of a chiropractic student. It reads:
"Being a chiropractic student is the single most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. However, it can also be the most difficult. Some days, my energy is low, my motivation wanes, and the thought of my bank account is overwhelming. This scholarship greatly counteracts some of those feelings. I am speaking from a place of profound gratitude in my heart when I say thank you for providing me with not only a monetary gift, but a gift of motivation as well. I look forward to using the scholarship towards taking an extra class this semester to bring me closer to my goal of finishing my last two semesters of the program abroad.
As a student of Life University and as a future chiropractor, I would like to thank you for your generosity and goodwill."
