100% of your donation goes to the Student Success Grants which is then rewarded directly to the student. Each student that is awarded this grant receives $500.
Scholarships for SMSU students are critical. Especially for students of diverse and multicultural backgrounds. Often, a scholarship is the difference between a student attending SMSU or choosing another college. Students who receive a SMSU Foundation scholarship graduate at a 17% higher rate and have a 13% higher retention rate than those who do not receive a scholarship.
