University of the Sciences hosted a reception for the WW Smith Charitable Trust and the student recipients of its annual scholarship on November 3, 2011. WW Smith has been funding scholarships for USciences students for the past 25 years with their support totaling more than $1.5 million. Their annual grant is used to support full-time, undergraduate students from the Delaware Valley who have financial need and are in good academic standing.
