The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) has awarded scholarships to six students in its Class of 2024. The students, all of whom are Idaho residents, received $7,000 each.
“The Scholarship Selection Committee has had the very difficult task of selecting a few students each year from an overwhelmingly deep and academically strong applicant pool,” said ICOM Director of Financial Aid Nicole McMillin, MPA. “The applications received each year continue to prove that ICOM is attracting extremely bright and accomplished students from across the State of Idaho who are committed to serving their communities as Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine.”
The student recipients include: Katie Coleman of Rexburg; Larry Spencer Fitch of Arbon; Brenna Houk of Boise; Chandler McSpadden of Pocatello; Abby Prow of Meridian; and William Speakman of Sugar City.
The $42,000 in scholarships came from the ICOM Scholarship Fund, to which 53% of the school’s employees contribute.
Apart from being Idaho residents, each of the recipients have at least a 3.5 GPA and submitted an essay explaining why they’re choosing to become osteopathic physicians.
The ICOM Scholarship Endowment is administered through the Idaho State University Foundation. Contributions to the ICOM Scholarship Fund can be made here.
