at SMU. Opportunities include:
- Giving to the Black Alumni Scholarship Fund
- Alumni Student Recruitment
- The Developing Dynamic Leaders student mentoring program
- Networking with other professionals
Stay connected to the SMU family by attending upcoming events, searching for friends in the directory and posting a class note to share your good news.
Black Alumni Scholarship
Black Alumni of SMU launched an initiative to raise funds for the Black Alumni Scholarship in 2011.
In the 2012-2013 school year, with the help of over 100 donors, Black Alumni of
SMU provided a scholarship of over $11,000 to this year's recipients, Mariam
Alaka and Hanan Hassan.
All money raised for the Black Alumni Scholarship goes directly to the
current SMU students selected. To qualify to receive this scholarship, a student
must meet the following criteria:
- Be at least a rising undergraduate sophomore or a graduate student
- Be a member of Association of Black Students
- Earn a GPA of 3.000 or above
- Demonstrate financial need
