Medical Student Resource Fund

Supporting the Student Resource Fund helps us provide educational and social needs for our medical students that they wouldn't otherwise have.

Medical Student Resource Fund

The Student Resource Fund (SRF) was established in 1997 by the SIU School of Medicine Alumni Society Board of Governors to enhance the student experience at SIU School of Medicine by funding educational and social needs that cannot be met through other fund sources. 

Examples of programs/projects that have been funded include:

  • remodeling of the Springfield and Carbondale student lounges;
  • purchasing anatomical models;
  • supporting the students’ Winter Ball; and
  • providing a group membership for Springfield-based students to join a local health club.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to submit requests for funding in January and the Alumni Society Board of Governors subcommittee reviews all proposals. Projects must benefit a large number of students and must meet an immediate and demonstrable student need. The Alumni Society Board of Governors makes final decisions at their spring meeting.
