Support the Financial Aid Program

Student and donors at event

Financial aid at SMUS is supported by our generous community of donors

Why does SMUS offer Financial Aid?

Financial aid is based on need and helps us in retaining our reputation as a diverse, global school of academic repute. Financial aid also helps us with the recruitment and retention of high potential students. The Board of Governors recognizes that, like most leading independent schools in North America, the ability to recruit some of the best students from around the world, regardless of financial circumstances, will benefit all students who attend SMUS.

Maintaining a truly diverse student body is equally important to us, and financial aid allows us to traverse potential barriers of geography and demographics when recruiting on the world stage. In addition, families may apply for financial aid themselves during the admissions process and even once enrolled at the school.

If you join our school you will be asked to contribute to our annual fundraising goals, including the school’s ongoing commitment to financial aid. You will find more information on how to donate, including an online donation form, on our Annual Appeal webpages.
