Supporting the community

MIGA's Grants Programs for students & doctors

An important core value of MIGA is to support the community and environment, which we do in many different ways.

One of the key methods we use to deliver support is through long-term Grants Programs - the Elective Grants Program for medical students and the Doctors in Training Grants Program.
These Programs enable MIGA to support the personal growth of students and junior doctors, delivering advantages for the broader medical profession as well as the community. The benefits that flow from the efforts of these individuals are immeasurable and ongoing, and we are incredibly proud to support all our recipients’ in their endeavours.
We encourage you to learn more about each Program and the available support below.
