Fund basis



A Student Giving Fund was started in 2012 during the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Melbourne Medical School and forms part of THE MEDICINE, DENTISTRY AND HEALTH SCIENCES SCHOLARSHIPS FUND. In 2015 the Philanthropy Group of the Melbourne Medical School Student Ambassadors announced a new scholarship from these funds. Each year, the fund is replenished by further student donations to 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.


$1,500 - Up to $500 available to each applicant.

Disclaimer: The benefit amount for this award is approximate. It will be confirmed at the time of awarding and determined by the committee according to the terms of the award.


Students must be :

  • currently enrolled in the Doctor of Medicine (MD) course at the University of Melbourne
  • have successfully completed at least one semester of the MD course; priority will be given to students from year levels MD2 and above
  • be making adequate academic progress.


Overall financial need and current scholarships a student is receiving will also be taken into account.
