The Women of Distinction program for high school seniors highlights the opportunities at Smith College for African American, Asian American, Latina and Native American students. Participants in this three-day program will explore Smith College and determine whether it might be an appropriate college choice for them. Students will live in campus houses, experience the academic and social life at Smith and attend panels and workshops on student life and the college admission process.
Admission to Women of Distinction is a competitive process based on academic and personal qualities. Smith will provide round-trip transportation, meals and accommodations
for all selected participants.
The program is for U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents who reside in the U.S. or a U.S. territory. International students and U.S. citizens abroad are not eligible to apply. Preferences will be given to students who have not previously visited Smith.
The Women of Distinction application will be available on August 1 and the deadline to apply is Friday, September 20, 2013.
