Grant Aid

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 Grants

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
