GEO Scholarships

The Global Education Office administers a number of scholarships, available to undergraduate students studying abroad on GEO programs. The table below summarizes the offerings available.

Competition for GEO scholarships can be entered with a single Common Application

Note that many scholarships are available only to students who are matriculated in or have a declared major, or dual major in a subject offered by the Vanderbilt University College of Arts and Science. These are identified as being for "A&S students only" below. Students matriculated in Blair, Peabody or Engineering are only eligible for "A&S only" scholarships if they have a declared dual major in the College of Arts and Science at the time of scholarship review.

As all GEO scholarships are need-based, students must have a CSS profile on file with the Office of Financial Aid. It is the applicants responsibility to ensure they have a CSS profile prior to the application deadline.

Scholarships for study abroad in Summer/Maymester will open for applications in mid-November, with applications due in mid-January. We expect to announce the results in late February.
