Smith expects students to budget for their textbooks. If costs exceed budgeted allowance or an emergency situation has impacted a student's available funds, they may apply for aid from SSAS.

Application Instructions

Textbook grants are coordinated with Susan Zachary, executive assistant to the Dean of the College. Funds are given in the form of credits to Grécourt Bookshop.

Students may only receive funding once per academic year.

Decisions are made on a rolling basis. Applications denied for SSAS funding will be automatically forwarded to the Dean of the College to be considered for other sources of funding.

Review of applications typically begins two weeks before the start of the semester. Students may only apply once per academic year.
