Who We Are

The Vanderbilt Woman's Club has been bringing women together since 1893. The Club provides an opportunity for intellectual, cultural, social, and philanthropic activities within the community and Vanderbilt University while supporting and assisting the mission of the University. The Club proudly sponsors the Stapleton/Weaver Scholarship through fundraising efforts.
