Cora Sue Smith From The Heart

Our mission is to make the dream of a post-secondary education a reality for prospective students who are descendants of an individual who lost their battle to heart disease and/or diabetes. Our goal is to ensure that no deserving scholar within our community is deprived of higher education. Qualified students must also meet academic requirements and show a financial need.
