Scholarship Information for Seniors

Posted by on Monday, September 21, 2009 in Application Process, Scholarships and Financial Aid.

Seniors on our Vanderbilt mailing list will be receiving information this week and next week about our scholarship and financial aid process. If your head is already swimming in dates and deadlines, then I apologize up front, because here comes some more:

Our merit scholarship application is being mailed out to all seniors on our mailing list, but it is already available online.  Applicants to the Ingram Scholarship Program have a December 1 postmarked deadline.  The Chancellor’s and Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholarship have a January 3 postmarked deadline.  National Merit and Achievement scholars should investigate our special scholarships for that, although keep in mind that there is not a separate application for that program.

Need-based scholarships ae determined through submitting the CSS Profile (available 10/1/09) and the FAFSA (available 1/1/10).

With need-based aid, recall our three commitments, which are the foundation of our aid policy:

  1. We read applications in a need-blind fashion
  2. We promise to meet 100% of your demonstrated need
  3. Our need-based financial aid offers do not include any loans

By the way, if you are not one of the col kids on our mailing list and would like to be (and honestly who wouldn’t want to be?) visit our online inquiry form.  Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Tough Start for Vandy Football

Life in the stacked SEC is tough and our ‘Dores have felt it started 1-2 with losses to LSU and Mississippi State.  The Commodores look to right the ship this weekend versus Rice.  Go ‘Dores!
