Fundraising Activities

The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine continues growing rapidly, attracting some of the brightest candidates for the College of Osteopathic Medicine, School of Dental Medicine and School of Pharmacy. While LECOM maintains one of the lowest private medical school tuitions in the country, these students face mounting debt as they complete their education. Each year, the college conducts fundraisers only for the purpose of providing scholarships to our students. Your support of the LECOM Student Scholarship Fund will help deserving students fulfill their dreams of becoming physicians, pharmacists and dentists.
