Welcome to
Palmer Rugby Alumni and Dr. David D. Palmer Athletic Trust News

The Dr. David D. Palmer Athletic Trust has been established to support Palmer College of Chiropractic by subsidizing educational development, offering scholarships to qualified students, and assisting Palmer College in any manner that aligns with progressing the Chiropractic profession.

Student Referarals

In order for us to maintain the agreement to increase scholarships we must refer 45 new students to Palmer over the next 3 years (average 15/yr. to offset the 15/yr. new scholarships we are receiving.)

These can be any combination of scholarship and non-scholarship students to the school.  Please complete the referral form to receive credit prior to the student contacting admissions.
