Grants are need-based and do not need to be repaid. In order to be considered for Smith College grants, you must apply for financial aid by the published deadlines, prior to admission.

Smith College Grant

The grant amount is based on a family's financial need as determined by Smith College through the financial aid application process. Most Smith grants come from funds given for this purpose by alumnae and friends of the college and by foundations and corporations. If you are a recipient of one of these named scholarships, you will be contacted by the Office of Donor Relations. You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire about your Smith experience. Your timely response is important. If you have any questions, contact

Health Grant

All international and undocumented students who receive need-based financial aid from the college will receive a health grant to cover the cost of health insurance through the college.  Non-aided international or undocumented students or international or undocumented students who successfully waive the health insurance are not eligible for this grant.
