The following represent the highest priorities for funding at this time:
Over 90 percent of all students at SMU receive some form of financial aid. With education costs on the rise, it is imperative that we continue to raise scholarship funds to attract the best and the brightest students in all programs within the university. Currently, many SMU students graduate with student loans in excess of $80,000. These same students are committed to their future roles as health care professionals and are prepared to make significant personal sacrifices in order to complete their degrees. Your scholarship gift enables SMU students to focus more on their education with less concern about amassing debt. Named scholarship funds are available with gifts of $25,000 or more.
