SAMS is now accepting applications for its national student representative program. SAMS is a non-profit, non-partisan humanitarian organization that has been at the forefront of the response to the medical crisis that has unfolded as a result of the Syrian conflict. The SAMS student representative program was created to give college students the opportunity to get involved with relief activities aiming to alleviate the suffering caused by the worst humanitarian crisis of our time.

Responsibilities of the SAMS student representative include:

  •  Recruiting healthcare professionals and Arabic speakers for SAMS medical mission trips to Jordan, Greece, Lebanon, and Turkey. 
  •  Organizing fundraisers and donation drive to support SAMS relief efforts across the globe.
  • Each student representative will be in charge of SAMS student activities on their campus and serve on the SAMS National Student Committee
  • Depending on the student’s language or medical skills, they could have the opportunity to participate in SAMS missions abroad, directly providing healthcare to refugees.

This is a unique opportunity to directly make an impact on the historic humanitarian crisis we are currently witnessing. It is also a great opportunity for students to gain valuable experience in healthcare, leadership, advocacy, and public policy

Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or professional program at an American university to be considered.

Students from all academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  If you have any questions about the application, send an email to
