A Tradition of Supporting the Physicians of Tomorrow through a Legacy of Endowment

The Society of 1924 was established not only to commemorate the date the SMA Alliance was founded but to provide a vehicle by which SMA and SMA Alliance members may receive recognition for continued contributions to the Association’s existing Research and Education Endowment Fund. The purpose of the Society is to enable further investment for members in the future of medical and health care delivery by providing scholarships for third year medical students.

Medical Student Scholarship

The Application for the 2018 Society of 1924  and Society of 1906 Scholarship is now CLOSED. 

The Southern Medical Association Alliance “Society of 1924 Medical Student Scholarship” and the Southern Medical Association “Society of 1906 Scholarship” EACH provide financial assistance in the form of a $2,000 scholarship for tuition or other required expenses to a 3rd year medical student who exhibits both academic and leadership qualities in need of financial aid.

The scholarships are for medical students entering their 3rd year in the fall.

Established in 2011 by the Southern Medical Association Alliance, the Society of 1924’s  purpose is to enhance ongoing efforts in the support of the Southern Medical Association Research and Education Endowment Fund, enabling continued investment for its members in the future of medical and healthcare delivery by providing scholarships for medical students. The Society of 1924 works in partnership with the Southern Medical Association’s Research and Education Endowment Fund which was established in 1986 to provide funding for scholarships, research projects and other programs supporting the educational purposes of the Association. The Society of 1906 was established to recognize major contributors to the Research and Education Endowment Fund. Scholarships are awarded annually to third-year medical students, particularly those of superior abilities with a financial need.
