Impact of Donor Support

  • More learners can pursue higher education. In 2022, 22,000 donors contributed $66.3 million for scholarships.
  • More students succeed. ASU ranks #1 among the state‚Äôs public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.
  • And donors helped ASU offer more than 4,500 hours of free tutoring.

I'm excited to give to the SMS First Generation Scholarship because I've worked with a number of excellent first generation SMS students and I think that it's incredibly important for us to continue to provide opportunities for these students in the future
