Empower outstanding students

Goal: $450 million

With your support, we will transform the lives of high-achieving students, enabling them to attend SMU regardless of financial means and apply what they gain on the Hilltop as they change the world.

“I learned how to think critically and reflect on the information I was receiving, rather than just memorize and regurgitate facts. At SMU I was exposed to a world different from my working-class upbringing in East Austin.”

— Pastor Richie Butler ’93, SMU Trustee and Former Scholarship Recipient
