The Medical Student Relief Bursary

The Medical Student Relief Bursary is a scholarship for medical students by medical students. Its purpose is to provide support to our peers during times of unexpected financial distress. Small bursaries will be granted to students that are experiencing sudden, unforeseen circumstances, which impact on their overall well-being and increase their financial need.

You can make an application or contribute to the bursary at any time.
