The Medical Student Relief Bursary

The Medical Student Relief Bursary is a bursary for medical students, led by medical students. Its purpose is to provide support to our peers during times of unexpected financial distress. Small bursaries are granted to students experiencing unforeseen circumstances to provide financial support that assists them to continue their studies.

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