Simmons 25 by 25 Initiative

Your gift to this scholarship program enables the Simmons School of Education and Human Development to recruit and retain outstanding graduate students.

 

Although more than 60% of Simmons students receive scholarship support each year, affordability remains the top barrier for educators who want to pursue an advanced degree. By 2025, the Simmons School seeks to address more unmet need by securing 25 new scholarships of $25,000 or more – raising $1 million for graduate student scholarships.

 

We invite you to take part in this critical initiative. Shape the future of education and school leadership in Dallas and beyond by supporting extraordinary teachers who impact countless students.

Drive for 5,000: SMU x ACC

No matter your connection to SMU, whether you’re a fan, friend, or alumni, it takes all of us to be Game Ready, Fan Ready, and ACC Ready. Gifts to the ACC Competitiveness Campaign provide enhanced support for our student-athletes and coaches – and ensure we can effectively recruit, retain, train, teach and compete for championships in the ACC.

 

Join fellow Mustangs in the Drive for 5,000, a nationwide push for 5,000 donors to SMU Athletics. Our greatest needs include the ACC Competitiveness Campaign, Mustang Athletic Fund, and Garry Weber End Zone Complex, however gifts to any athletic fund will count towards the drive. Thank you for investing in the future of SMU Athletics.

 

Funding Priorities

Funds to the ACC Competitiveness Campaign will increase coaching and administrative staffing, increase every sport’s budget, provide facility upgrades and renovations, and assist with one-time transition costs.

 

Funds to the Mustang Athletic Fund support each of our 484 student-athletes with a gift to our annual fund. Donations to the Mustang Athletic Fund cover operational expenses of the SMU Athletic Department with a wide-ranging impact on all 17 sports. As the largest fund within our family of giving options, gifts to this fund impact the areas of greatest need within our programs.

 

The Garry Weber End Zone Complex will bolster the efficiency, occupancy, and functionality of Ford Stadium through better accessibility and premium fan seating, empower Mustang student-athletes with dynamic new spaces for strategy- and team-building activities, strengthen the health and well-being of SMU Athletics through improved nutrition and sports medicine facilities, as well as better training and recovery options. Gifts to the Garry Weber End Zone Complex will help further SMU Athletics’ momentum toward the upper echelons of competitive athletics.
