About Us

The SMA Charity Fund (SMACF) was set up by the Singapore Medical Association (SMA) in 2013 and has been a registered charity under the Charities Act since 17 April 2013 and a registered charity with IPC status since 27 December 2013.

SMACF was created to further the works done under the SMA-Medical Students' Assistance Fund, a bursary program established in 2007, to help underprivileged medical students in NUS Medicine, and now to LKC Medicine and Duke-NUS too.

Together with many medical professionals and like-minded individuals, we are committed to the future of medicine in Singapore by ensuring that any young person who has the passion, ability and dream to be a doctor, irrespective of family background and socioeconomic status are able to pursue a career in medicine.

Apart from financial assistance bursaries, SMACF also supports learning exposure, advocates volunteerism, provides support for health and public health related education and recognises mentorship by acknowledging exemplary medical educators.

Our Programmes

The 4 strategic programmes under SMACF are:

PROVIDING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
The SMA-Medical Students' Assistance Fund provides bursary to medical students from less privileged family background. The bursary of S$5,000 per academic year is given directly to the medical students to support their daily living expenses and not offset against tuition fees.

ADVOCATING VOLUNTEERISM
SMACF believes in the value of building a compassionate medical profession by promoting and supporting meaningful student-led healthcare projects.

SUPPORTING LEARNING EXPOSURES
SMACF sponsors needy medical students for overseas medical conferences and/or elective postings, creating equal opportunities in their pursuit of medical knowledge.

RECOGNISING MENTORSHIP
The WHB-SMACF Outstanding Mentor Award is given out yearly to recognize exemplary mentors who have made a significant difference to the development of their students.
