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.

Golf Scholarship Classic

Join us for the 17th annual Golf Scholarship Classic on August 26th, 2021 at Lake Shore Country Club.
The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine is the nation’s largest medical college. LECOM offers quality medical education at an affordable price. Many LECOM students still leave school with debt in excess of $190,000.

To alleviate some of this debt, LECOM provides scholarships to medical, pharmacy and dental students based upon academic achievement and financial need. You can assist our efforts by choosing from sponsorships, advertising, or playing a round of golf.

Visit Golf Scholarship Classic Registration to register for the event.
