The Smith Family partnership

Partnering with The Smith Family to help improve educational outcomes for medical and dental students through their Learning for Life program 

At BOQ Specialist, we have a long history of working with students and graduates and have a deep understanding of the unique challenges they face, which is why we are thrilled to be supporting The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program, through the sponsorship of 21 tertiary students undertaking their medical or dental studies.

We are proud to partner with The Smith Family – Australia’s leading children’s education charity, providing young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds with the extra tools and support they need to succeed at school, so they can create better futures for themselves.


For almost 100 years, The Smith Family has been tackling the problem of poverty, one child at a time. Through their flagship Learning for Life program, they are helping young Australians overcome their circumstances by providing long-term support for their education in three distinct ways.  They provide financial support for school essentials; they provide access to additional learning programs; and each individual is matched with a dedicated team member at The Smith Family to help them along their journey. This proven three-pronged approach is equipping these young Australians with the motivation, resilience and life skills they need to complete their schooling and go on to better futures.


We are absolutely delighted to be joining forces with The Smith Family to help these students on their journey to becoming a doctor or dentist.
