Smith Scholarships

The Smith Scholarship Foundation invests in the college education of economically disadvantaged students across the country.

Our funeral home wants to recognize the Smith family has served the Chicago area for over a century, the 100th anniversary of  the Smith ownership of a funeral home, and Bob’s service as a president of the Chicago, Illinois and National Funeral Directors Association.

Most importantly, Bob has dedicated his time and efforts to improving the quality of incoming funeral service professionals. Therefore, Smith-Corcoran Funeral Homes has initiated a scholarship award program for funeral students called the Robert Smith Funeral Service Scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship gift is awarded by the funeral home and can be split among multiple recipients. The money will go directly towards mortuary education and training.
