Scholarships & Awards
In 1985, the family and friends of Dr. Dana W. Nance (B.A., 1925, M.D., 1929) endowed the Nance Prize to provide an annual award given to a student in the College of Arts & Science. The award recognizes an outstanding graduating senior from the pre-medical curriculum who has demonstrated perseverance in overcoming academic, financial, or social obstacles to succeed, who is well-trained in the technical skills acquired through the undergraduate pre-medical curriculum, and who possesses an abiding sense of ethical and moral concern for the patient.
The Dean of the College of Arts & Science joins with the Health Professions Advisory Office in calling for applications from Vanderbilt University pre-med students who have applied to medical school in the current cycle (2023 Entering Cycle). A faculty committee from the College of Arts & Science will select the Nance Prize Scholars for 2023.
The recipients will receive recognition in the graduation program and a monetary award of either $3500 or $2000. All applicants will be notified of a decision by May 1, 2023.
Applications are due at the Health Professions Advisory Office no later than April 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm CST and should be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
