Here for Every Voice
According to the Institute for Higher Education Policy, nearly eight out of 10 families cannot afford college. That’s why Smith College has launched an ambitious initiative: to raise $75 million for scholarship aid. Together, we will give voice to students of all backgrounds. Please join us in ensuring that cost is never an obstacle for any Smithie.
December 2020 Giving Challenge
The Gift of Education Is the Greatest Gift You Can Give to the Next Generation
We believe no Smithie should have to sacrifice their dreams of an exceptional education because of financial hardship–and with your help, they don’t have to. The Smith Fund is challenging the Smith community to raise 3,100 donations in 31 days for scholarship aid. Throughout December, all donations, no matter the size, will go directly toward keeping a Smith education accessible and affordable.

Here To Re-Frame
“As the first in my family to attend college, I consider myself lucky. In today’s knowledge economy, without college access there is no level playing field, there is no equity, there is no American dream.”
