Aspire Higher

The mission of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) is to empower students to think critically, engage in lifelong leadership and effect positive change in a spirit of service and social responsibility. SMWC’s goal is much like the Indiana Alliance of Boys & Girls Club’s mission, which is to assist students in reaching their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. With that in mind, SMWC is awarding several scholarships specifically to participants of the Indiana Boys & Girls Clubs, including a full-tuition SMWC Indiana Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year Scholarship.
