Experience Vanderbilt (EV) is a student-led, university-supported initiative that provides undergraduate students who qualify for need-based financial aid with funding for extracurricular activities that have fees.

These extracurricular activities include student organizations, club sports, arts, and cultural experiences, service trips, outdoor recreation trips, Greek Life, or any official Vanderbilt student organization that has fees associated with participation. EV will be awarding $360,000 for the 2019-20 academic year through a confidential application available on AnchorLink and a random selection process. Applicants are eligible to receive up to $500 for one of their three ranked experiences.

Upperclassmen, First Year, and transfer applications for the 2019-20 school year are now closed. Selected awardees will be notified via email of their funds.

For more information about the application process, please see the Application page and the FAQs.
