Each year, the ACAC awards a $2,000 scholarship to one student applicant. Applications are accepted between June 1 and October 30. The recipient and their college will be notified by the end of January.
The Preceptorship Program provides an opportunity for chiropractic students to gain patient experience in a clinical setting and develop a clear understanding of the ACAC’s regulatory and association requirements. As well, the Preceptorship Program allows ACAC members to pass on experience, keep up-to-date with chiropractic curricula and establish relationships with chiropractic students.

- Students must be within six months of graduation from an accredited chiropractic college.
- Preceptorship students may only perform duties/activities under the direct supervision of an approved and registered Alberta chiropractor.
