Abstract: The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) is an excellent laboratory to study the formation of solar-mass stars in a low metallicity environment, similar to the conditions expected in the early phases of galactic evolution. Here we present preliminary results from a search for low mass pre-main-sequence stars in the SMC based on Hubble Space Telescope archival data. Candidates are selected on the basis of their Hα emission and location in the [(F675W-F814W), F814W] color-magnitude diagram. We discuss characteristics of our candidate T Tauri sample and possible follow up work.
