The program was designed to accommodate women at all stages of life, offering the opportunity to complete their education on a flexible schedule and providing special academic and social supports. Named for Ada Comstock 1897, the first dean of the college at Smith, Ada Comstock Scholars enrich the Smith community in myriad ways.
