Application for Merit Scholarships

 

Students interested in being considered for the Ingram, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and/or Chancellor's Scholarship must first apply for admission by submitting the Common Application, Coalition Application, QuestBridge Application, or the Universal College Application to Vanderbilt. Within two business days of submitting your application for admission to Vanderbilt, you should receive an email from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions explaining how to create your online MyAppVU account. Under the Scholarship Application option in MyAppVU, you will be able to select the signature program(s) to which you wish to apply. Through your MyAppVU portal, you will upload your responses for the scholarship applications as a PDF document and submit online. Once you submit your scholarship application online, you should receive immediate confirmation indicating the date of submission. You will also see a green check mark which indicates the application was submitted successfully.

Students interested in being considered for the Additional Merit Scholarships (Carell Family, Curb Leadership, and Fred Russell-Grantland Rice) should submit the Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholarship application to be considered.
