We believe that Vanderbilt can become the destination for the most talented and ambitious students and faculty across the globe. Philanthropic investments at every level will make this possible, whether by providing need-based financial aid through Opportunity Vanderbilt, supporting residential colleges and opportunities for experiential learning, or bringing even more all-star faculty to our campus.

By providing tuition support for advanced degree programs, we can also expand access for graduate students, and attract the best aspiring professionals in a range of fields, positioning them to lead discovery and discourse alongside faculty mentors.

Vanderbilt students enjoy being part of a vibrant university environment.

For all of our students, Vanderbilt’s intentional culture of belonging and empowerment sets in from the moment they join our community, and continues until and after their graduation—when they apply their diverse experiences, collaborative mindset, critical thinking and open-minded perspectives to their roles across business, civil society, medicine, the arts and countless other areas. By investing in our students and faculty, we will strengthen Vanderbilt’s reputation around the world, making our university a destination of choice for more of the best and brightest.
