Invest in Our Scholars

Invest in Our Scholars

SMASH is committed to our duty to support and serve youth from underrepresented communities. We are actively working to eliminate the lack of equal access in STEM faced by our Scholars. Since 2004, we have provided over 1,300 motivated high school scholars from underrepresented communities with the opportunity to enhance their education. But we can’t do it alone. 


Gifts of all sizes tell our Scholars that they have an extensive community of individuals who believe in them, want to help them succeed, and demonstrate that our Scholars are a worthwhile investment. Plus, your gift supports the next generation of STEM innovators who will make a positive difference in their communities and in the world.

Thanks to our philanthropic investors, SMASH Scholars are equipped with the knowledge and confidence to bring about social change. With your support, we are able to open doors, close opportunity gaps, and SMASH barriers.their education.
