SMU Foundation (Registered legally as "Association d'Appui au Savoir de la SMU") is a Tunisian non-profit association founded in 2018 by the South Mediterranean University (SMU-Group MSB, MedTech and LCI). Its aim is to promote and support the development of youth through the funding of student scholarships, research projects as well as employability and capacity building initiatives.
Offer scholarships and loans to students who have the talent and ability to succeed but concerns about funding.
Deploy capacity building programs that develop competencies and skills (Ex.: Leadership & Public Policy Development Program, Green & Sustainable Campus.)
Facilitate employability of young graduates by bringing them into a high-level training coupled with apprenticeship & cultivate the entrepreneurship culture.
Provide an optimal framework for research around projects that have the potential to positively impact the social and economic sectors.
“ During my Master's studies at MSB, I had the privilege to earn an excellence scholarship that allowed me to be financially sustainable. It really motivated me to always outperform, with excellent grades and experiences that allowed me to land a job in one of the best pharmaceutical companies in the world.”
Beyond the four modules built with a lot of pedagogy, I especially appreciated the quality of the exchanges. The case studies were very effective and useful to understand the application of theoretical knowledge to practical and real situations. In all honesty, I can only highlight positive points. In summary I would say thank you again for this great learning experience.
"I am very thankful to have been chosen for an excellence scholarship to study at the Mediterranean Institute of Technology (MedTech). I have been part of a wonderful learning experience that brings me closer to achieving my dream of becoming a software engineer who has the ability to occupy important leadership positions. Thanks to the encouragement and support I was offered, I have had the opportunity to stay on top of my class since I started my journey at SMU. I have also had the chance to develop my knowledge and soft skills by participating in extracurricular activities, and by being an active member of different student clubs such as IEEE SMU Student Branch. I am deeply grateful to the SMU Foundation for believing in me and helping me to pursue my dreams."
I am immensely grateful to the SMU Foundation for awarding me the excellence scholarship in my first year. It has been a life-changing experience, and I feel honored to be a part of the MSB community. One of the highlights of my scholarship experience was the exchange opportunity at Catolica Lisbon School of Business and Economics Portugal. I am proud to be a part of such a vibrant community of SMU that enabled me to push the boundaries and be active in many clubs and take leadership role. The scholarship has motivated me to strive for excellence, and I am confident that it will continue to have a positive impact on my future endeavors.
