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.

Business Graduate Fellowship Support

Smith recruits top MBA, MS, and PhD students from across the nation and around the globe. The university's success — and theirs — depends on providing these students with significant financial support. Fellowships help us compete against other business schools that are providing large grants to their students. Graduate fellowships at Maryland Smith help attract and retain future global business leaders.

MBA Scholarship Fund

The Maryland 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 Maryland Smith MBA Scholarship Fund supports the program by providing students with financial resources, as well as opportunities for students to participate in case competitions, career treks to places like Wall Street, and a first-hand global perspective of business by enrolling in the global study abroad program.
