See flyer below for information on the Nancy Ann and Ray L. Hunt Leadership Scholars Program.  The Hunt Leadership Scholarship is one of the most generous and prestigious leadership scholarships in the country, and it allows students to combine learning and leadership in a unique way at SMU.  They are looking for 20-25 students each year who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership in high school, and who will passionately pursue leadership as Mustangs.  Hunt Scholars take a leadership development course together during their first semester on campus, study abroad together, enjoy wide access to the Tate Lecture Series, engage with campus, community, and world leaders, and create a lifelong network of leaders by working alongside one another.

Students selected as Hunt Leadership Scholars for the Class of 2023 will receive an annual Hunt Scholarship of $42,000 or a total of $168,000 over four years.  The Hunt Scholarship may be stacked up to tuition and fees with need-based aid, outside scholarships, and many of SMU’s departmental scholarship, but it will replace and supersede any centrally administered merit aid.  Additionally, the Hunt Scholarship covers full tuition and airfare for a leadership-based study abroad program during May term following the scholars’ sophomore year.


If you are planning a trip to Dallas, Texas for College Board Forum 2018, SMU would like to invite you to visit our beautiful tree-lined campus in the heart of the city.

About SMU:
At SMU, your students will benefit from a wide range of academic programs, internship opportunities, career services, and an economically dynamic city with a vibrant arts scene. Our rigorous academic enterprise of more than 100 majors and 85 minors includes notable programs in the humanities and sciences, business, engineering, visual and performing arts, communication, and education. Our students motivate one another to do their best to make a meaningful difference in our community, providing more than 200,000 hours of public service in the area. We enjoy a wide variety of cultural activities on campus and resources such as the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Tate Lecture Series, which bring world leaders and innovators to campus.

We’re interested in the visionaries, the dreamers, the creators – ambitious minds that will take advantage of SMU's emphasis on Engaged Learning, through programs like BigiDeas and creative spaces like the Deason Innovation Gym, and more. We’re know your students want to do amazing and revolutionary things, and our goal is to help them expand their knowledge, explore new ideas and engage in the creation of solutions that will shape their future.
