Supporting Adult Education
The trustees of Smith College offer tuition assistance to the daughters of those who have been residents of Northampton or Hatfield for at least five years, on the condition that the students are of traditional age and enrolled full time at Smith College. In 2016–17, the Trustee Grant was set at half the cost of tuition ($23,810 per student). Sixteen Northampton and Hatfield students received assistance in this program in 2016–17 for awards totaling $369,055.
Financial Aid to Massachusetts Residents
In 2016–17, institutional financial aid to Massachusetts residents attending Smith totaled $11.4 million.
Community College Support
Since 1999, Smith has provided classroom space to Greenfield Community and Holyoke Community colleges for evening adult education.
Approximately 83 non-Smith members of the community audited courses at Smith for $50 per course ($200 for dance, computer science or intensive language courses).
