Where to Invest

Support Student Experiences

Making a gift to give a scholarship or fellowship creates a direct impact on a student's academic career. Rather than worrying about paying for tuition or books, a student can focus on doing well in the classroom and preparing for life after graduation. One-hundred percent of every gift made to a fellowship or scholarship go directly to student awards – so every dollar you invest will make a difference.

Smith School Annual Fund

The Smith School Annual Fund fills the gap between tuition, state support, and the true cost of a Smith School education. Unrestricted funds allow the Smith School to address immediate needs as they arise and improve programs and services when the timing is right. A gift to the Smith School Annual Fund allows us to remain competitive and responsive to the benefit of our students.

The Robert H. Smith School of Business General Scholarship Fund

The Robert H. Smith School of Business General Scholarship Fund provides student tuition support for undergraduates. Your investment provides an immediate impact on the lives of our students and, in many instances, allows them to continue their business education at Smith.

MBA Development Fund

The Smith MBA program prepares students to successfully meet the challenges of a business world that are rapidly reinventing itself into a more globally connected environment. The Smith MBA Scholarship Fund supports the MBA program in a variety of ways, including funding events and scholarships, supplementing teaching stipends, and developing services for our current students.
