Dr. Kerry White “I Can I Will” Memorial Scholarship Fund
Amount Awarded: $1,500
Applicant Type: Returning Student

The Dr. Kerry White “I Can I Will” Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by her colleagues in 2016 in memory of Dr. Kerry White, who lost her battle with melanoma in May of 2016. Kerry was diagnosed with Stage 4 melanoma midway through the chiropractic program in 2012. Despite enduring extensive treatment, Kerry did not miss a single class and graduated on time with her class in December 2014. Kerry’s “I Can I Will” motto fully embodies a student deserving of this award; a positive, hardworking, passionate, dedicated and devoted student ambitious about bringing chiropractic to his/her community. Unfortunately, Kerry was not able to recover enough to go into practice like she had always dreamed. This fund serves to provide financial support to students so they can carry out the “I Can I Will” motto.

Dr. Richard S. Lord Scholarship
Amount Awarded: TBD based on interest accrued
Applicant Type: New or Returning Student

The Richard S. Lord Scholarship was established upon his departure from the university in 1989. He had been impressed with the high quality of many students in his classes, and he wanted the proceeds from sales of the Biochemistry Laboratory Manual that he had self-published to accrue in a fund that would benefit worthy students. The book was written to guide students in their execution of specific experiments that were set up when the course was first created. As those experiments were modified under succeeding professors, the manual became outdated, so the fund was built from book sales over the few years after he had left the program. It continues to provide support to a few students each year.
