Scholarship for Chiropractic Studies 2019

The 2019 scholarship for chiropractic are now accepting applications

Hong Kong Chiropractic College Foundation aims at fund raising for the establishment of a chiropractic college in Hong Kong. It intends to train more local chiropractors to serve the general public in Hong Kong. As of today, there are only around 200 practitioners to serve 7.5 million local people, that is, each chiropractor needs to serve as many as 44,000 people. This is far from sufficient! At present, all registered chiropractors in Hong Kong are mainly graduated from USA, Canada, UK and Australia. The number of local chiropractors has been increasing at a slow pace.

A scholarship is available to study Chiropractic (Master of Chiropractic) in AECC University College, UK (http://www.aecc.ac.uk/). The scholarship covers the entire tuition fees for the four - five years of study which is depended on the entry year level (Year 0 or 1).
