Here for Every Voice

As a leader in higher education, Smith is committed to dismantling the financial barriers that can deter even the most promising students from applying to college; students should not have to fear that their economic circumstances will prevent them from being accepted in spite of their academic qualifications. That’s why Smith has launched an ambitious initiative: to raise $200 million in endowed scholarship aid. Together, we can ensure that every qualified student from every walk of life can experience a Smith education. Please join us in leveling the playing field.

By raising $200 million in endowed scholarship aid, we will open Smith’s gates to the best minds. We will create opportunities that didn’t exist before. We will educate the next generation of women leaders who will use their voices to lift communities, change policies, disrupt convention and create a more just and equitable world.

Making a difference is what Smithies do best.
