Grants for noncredit and credit-bearing travel and programs are available to all Smith undergraduate students in financial need.
Eligible expenses include:
- unreimbursed fees or costs associated with trips
- programs for credit-bearing courses offered or accepted for credit by Smith and not covered by financial aid
Please note: Funds cannot be awarded as a supplement to Praxis funding.
Students with credit shortages get preference in funding for summer school unless that shortage is the result of an acceleration plan.
The signature of your adviser or instructor is required on the application for credit-bearing programs and travel.
In addition, you must include:
- a complete budget, including your own contribution towards the activity for which you are requesting aid
- a complete description of the activity
Please return applications to the Class Deans Office, College Hall 101.
The application deadline is April 15. No late applications will be accepted. Decision will be announced by May 1.
Fourteen to 30 percent of grant total is withheld for tax purposes. Awards cannot be adjusted to cover this. You need to pay the difference. Make sure you file a tax return for possible refund.
