Intersessions Partial Tuition Scholarship

A limited number of scholarships are available to full-time SMU undergraduate students enrolled in Dallas intersessions courses. Assistance is awarded at the discretion of the Intersessions Scholarship Committee based on financial need, academic merit, and strength of the applicant's essay.

An Intersessions Scholarship may be combined with other financial aid, not to exceed the cost of tuition.  The scholarship may only be applied towards the cost of tuition.

  • Those receiving staff/dependent benefits through SMU are not eligible.
  • The scholarship is not applicable to the Meadows New York Colloquium in Jan Term.
  • Students must be enrolled in at least 3 credit hours to be eligible for this award.  

Eligible students may apply by submitting the online application form and required essay (not to exceed 750 words).  Essays should describe  financial need, as well as how Intersessions attendance will help meet academic and/or professional goals.
