About the Scholarship

 

Established in 1999 by Dr. Nalyn Marcus, a ’90 graduate of Sherman College, the scholarship honors Dr. Sylva Ashworth, a pioneer and powerhouse in our profession. After receiving chiropractic care, Dr. Ashworth attended Palmer School and Cure in 1917, as a single mother of four. She went on to maintain a high volume practice, and remained influential and visible in the profession throughout her life. Her legacy continues through 5 generations of Cleveland family chiropractors.

The International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations has agreed to provide a home for the Ashworth scholarship. The IFCO has been an active voice for chiropractic for more than 35 years and is represented by a national constituency and student chapters at leading chiropractic colleges.

The Sylva Ashworth Scholarship is funded solely through contributions and purchases of limited edition lapel pins and “Cooking with Chiropractic” cookbooks. For more information on these products, please contact nalyn@chiromom.com 

*The Sylva Ashworth Scholarship is awarded based upon eligibility and essay creativity. While it is the committee’s intention to award this scholarship annually, it reserves the right to grant scholarships solely on the basis of quality and eligibility and as such may encounter a year where an award is not granted.
