ABOUT OUR INITIATIVE
In conjunction with SMU’s 20th Anniversary, SM20thing The Way For Change is a student-led initiative by the SMU Ambassadorial Corps (ASMU) to celebrate the myriad of people and stories that make us One SMU. Through our initiative, we aim to raise funds for SMU bursaries which enables SMU Access, a pledge by our university that ensures no student is denied an education at SMU due to financial circumstances. ASMU believes that by supporting this cause, we can ensure that the potential of all promising students is translated into a lasting impact on the world.

OUR MOTTO
Create and Celebrate Change

WHAT WE DO
To encourage the SMU community to showcase how they have created a meaningful impact in the past, we provide limited edition SMOO SMOO figurines for participants to purchase and decorate in a way that best embodies their respective faculty, office, or student club. The figurines will be put on display around the SMU Campus till the end of the year. Through mass voting, prizes will be awarded to the top three figurines with the most creative design. All proceeds raised will go towards SMU bursaries to support financially challenged students in their pursuit of a holistic SMU education.

How you can help
Your gift is important. We ask for your generous support to help our peers who are financially challenged and grant more deserving students a smooth academic journey for many more milestones to come.

TESTIMONy
Here's what one of our student recipients of the bursary had to say:
"I am extremely grateful to be chosen for this bursary and it made me feel appreciated and recognized. I would like to thank everyone involved in the selection process and to give me a sense of relief as this bursary has taken some load off my shoulders. With this, I will be able to focus better on the other aspects of my student and working life and not be so distracted by debts and other financial issues.”
