The Meadows Scholars Program

The Meadows Scholars Program is an initiative at the Meadows School of the Arts which enables SMU and Dallas to compete nationally for the most talented and academically successful students in the arts and communications.

Increased support allows Meadows to award more scholarships to these impressive students— the difference is YOU! Any gift, at any level, makes an impact!

About Meadows Scholars

Meadows Scholars supporters may make a gift at any time during the year. Contributions to the Meadows Scholars Program are strengthening the arts and communications in Dallas in the following ways:

  • Meadows Scholars are among the most highly sought after students in the nation and receive competitive offers from institutions such as Harvard, Juilliard, and Oberlin.
  • This fall, SMU welcomed the ninth class of Meadows Scholars. The new class of 27 scholars is elevating SMU’s excellence at Meadows and across campus.
  • The Meadows Scholars Program creates an additional draw through scholarships that reach the tipping point in a student’s college decision, provide unique opportunities for community engagement, student research and international travel, and allow for exclusive access to events in Dallas’ world-renowned arts district.
