About Campaignends 30 Apr 2024, 11:59 PM
There are a number of bursaries, financial assistance schemes and loans which can help pay for tuition fees, but what about basic living expenses for the poorer students? We know some of these students have managed by giving tuition, unfortunately, at the expense of their own studies.
To help the poorer students with their basic living expenses, SMACF has set up the SMA MEDICAL STUDENTS ASSISTANCE FUND, a bursary program to help these needy medical students.
Funds raised will be used to support the daily expenses of needy students at our 3 medical schools by way of financial assistance through the SMA Medical Students' Assistance Fund Bursaries.

About the Charity
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.
