PCOM Scholarships for Incoming Students

The PCOM Office of Admissions offers merit scholarships to newly admitted students. Certain PCOM and GA-PCOM programs have a limited number of full- and partial-tuition scholarships available during the application cycle.

Students will be considered by the Office of Admissions and PCOM faculty based on the admissions process—academic record, strength of interview, and promise of exceptional achievement. If an incoming student is awarded an admissions merit scholarship, they will be notified directly by the PCOM Office of Admissions with a scholarship letter at the time of their PCOM admissions acceptance letter.
