Vanderbilt Master of Marketing Merit-Based Scholarships

All applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships in a competitive applicant pool. Selection criteria include academic and personal achievements evidenced by GPA, GMAT or GRE scores, resume, recommendations, essays, and the evaluative interview. Scholarships cover partial tuition, and candidates will be notified of an award when given an offer of admission. Vanderbilt OGSM does not offer need-based scholarships.

Accelerator Alumni Scholarship

Each year the Vanderbilt Master of Marketing program awards up to $5,000 in scholarship funding to participants of the Vanderbilt Accelerator® program.


Federal Financial Aid

Loans are dispersed through the central Office of Student Financial Aid. Visit Vanderbilt University’s financial aid website for details about loan options.

International students do not qualify for federally funded loan programs unless they are permanent residents of the U.S. However, an international student may apply for a private alternative source of funding; a U.S. citizen or permanent resident is required as a co-borrower.

Other Resources

In addition to federal loans, scholarships and employment, students should consider personal savings, family funds, sponsorship by their company or government and other outside loans, grants and scholarships. SallieMae—a government-sponsored organization—provides the largest secondary market in the student loan business. You can find financial aid information, loan calculators and a free scholarship search at SallieMae.

Several resources exist for international students seeking financial aid to study in the U.S. Some banks will authorize loans, provided that the student has a bona fide U.S. co-signer to guarantee the loan.

For International Students

International students may apply for a private alternative educational loan, with a U.S. citizen or permanent resident as a co-signer, for an amount up to the total cost of education. Please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid for additional information. Or they may apply directly to Prodigy Finance, which does not require a co-signer. Click here to learn more.
