PCOM Student Emergency Funding

PCOM offers emergency funding for students who are experiencing emergencies or financial hardships. These funds are used to provide support to medical and graduate students.

PCOM Student Emergency Fund

The PCOM Student Emergency Fund was established in 2020 by alumni, employees and the Alumni Association of PCOM in response to the financial hardship endured by some students during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund continues to receive donations and is used to provide emergency support to students as it relates to their education. Applicable students can be enrolled at any of the PCOM campus location or within any of our academic programs.

OIS Endowed Student Emergency Fund

The OIS Endowed Student Emergency Fund was established in 2022 by the Osteopathic Institute of the South (OIS). Funds generated annually will help students who have had their education, training and lives impacted by unforeseen incidents. Funding will be distributed for the most basic needs including food and nutritional essentials, housing, or health care. Funds may also support course materials, technology and emergency travel expenses. Applicable students must be enrolled at PCOM Georgia or PCOM South Georgia at the time of application and award distribution.

Award Data

Over $350,000 has been granted to over 350 students from these sources since 2020. Students may receive up to $1,000 when they request the fund.
