The recipient of the $1,500 graduate scholarship that will go toward covering expenses of medical school is Karolina Mieczkowska. She is a medical student at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, N.Y. Mieczkowska attended Boston College for her undergraduate education.
The recipient of the $1,500 undergraduate scholarship is Cameron Casciano. He is attending the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University in Syracuse, N.Y., where he is majoring in biomedical engineering.
This is the second year of the PGM scholarship program. Last year's winners were Megan Thacker, a medical school student at University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Karina Barajas, an undergraduate student at California State University, Los Angeles.
"We are pleased to award Karolina and Cameron with these scholarships," says Chris Saviano, VP of Business Development for PGM Billing. "Both are very deserving students. We are excited to help support their pursuit of academic excellence."
Saviano continues, "We received numerous, impressive applications from all over the country, which made this decision very difficult. We want to thank all of the talented students who took the time to apply and wish them luck in the academic endeavors."
In order to reward a great number of deserving students with a scholarship, PGM is revising its scholarship program for the 2018-2019 academic year. PGM will now reward three $500 graduate/medical school scholarships and three $500 undergraduate scholarships.
