Scholarship Opportunity

In 2011, the University of Bridgeport School of Chiropractic initiated the Dr. Rose Galiger Chiropractic Scholarship, which is designed to allow prospective students an opportunity for merit scholarship funds to support their chiropractic education.

“I am exceptionally proud to have been a faculty member at the University of Bridgeport School of Chiropractic since its inception in 1991. The small classes and dedicated faculty in the basic sciences, clinical sciences, and clinical services provide the optimal environment for individual attention and encouragement as well as personal growth as a health care professional. The goal of the School is to produce the best and most up to date chiropractic physicians who will continue in their quest to become life-long learners dedicated to the care of their patients.”

Rose Bucsi Galiger Ph. D, Professor Emeritus
