Simmons Alumnae/i Referral Program For Graduate Students

We all have a relative, friend, acquaintance, or colleague who we know would benefit from a graduate degree at Simmons. We want to help make that a reality by offering a $500 referral scholarship* for any enrolling student who is nominated by a Simmons alum. Fill out the Simmons Alumnae/i Referral Form and if the person you nominated enrolls, they will receive the $500 Simmons Friend Scholarship.

  • Nominate a potential Simmons graduate student by filling out the form.
  • If the person you nominate enrolls**, they will receive a $500 award during their first term*** at Simmons.

Submit A Nominee

* The Simmons Friend Scholarship is currently available for the 2023-2024 academic year. Scholarships are subject to change and restrictions may apply. Students enrolled in partnership/employer programs are not eligible to receive the Simmons Friend Scholarship.

** Students may be nominated by multiple Simmons alums, but are limited to one $500 award. Simmons alums are not eligible to refer themselves.

*** The referral form must be completed prior to the incoming graduate student’s first term. The scholarship cannot be applied retroactively.
