SMU Fund for Meadows
Gifts to the SMU Fund for Meadows address the most immediate and pressing funding priorities for the school and are allocated at the discretion of the Dean of the Meadows School of the Arts. Examples include graduate student stipends, faculty research grants, technology upgrades and instrument maintenance and repair.
Scholarships are essential to attract and retain the most artistically- and academically-gifted students from around the world. The Meadows Scholars program targets high-achieving undergraduate students who continually raise the standard of excellence for all Meadows students. Diversity scholarships benefit students from underrepresented ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive artistic community.
Meadows Museum Acquisitions
The Meadows Museum holds the largest and most important collection of Spanish art outside of Spain. Acquisition gifts help strategically grow the Museum’s permanent collection. All gifts to the Meadows Museum Acquisitions Fund are matched dollar for dollar by The Meadows Foundation, Inc. The Museum is currently raising funds to acquire Mariano Fortuny’s stunning Beach at Portici, 1874.
Ignite Arts/Dallas brings the passion, artistic talent and technical skill of Meadows students and faculty into North Texas communities.
