This is a program that provides awarded scholarships for children of other college/university employees to bring to Smith. For the 2013 - 2014 academic year Smith College will award $32,500 for their TE scholarships. Smith College has deemed that the TE scholarships may be used for tuition fees only.

Students selected to receive a TE award will be notified in early April. Both the offer of admission and the TE award must be responded to by May 1st.
