The fourth scholarship was split between Southern California University of Health Sciences student Stanton Hom, and Northwestern Health Sciences University student Sarah Hjerjo, due to a tie.

"We were impressed by the high quality of all the applications," said Dr. Mary Beth Larsen, Standard Process' chiropractic relations manager. "While that made the selection process challenging, it was exciting to see how bright future of chiropractic looks."
This was the second year Standard Process presented the scholarships. Hom also won the scholarship in 2009. Essays were reviewed by an independent panel of five reviewers.
