Every year, the United States misses significant opportunities to educate highly talented students who possess enormous potential to become our country’s future leaders, inventors and innovators but don’t have the ability to pay for a college education.

Vanderbilt University is working with other top-performing universities across the nation to #ActivateTalent in every community to ensure that every talented student has access to a world-class education. The university is doing this through its expanded financial aid program, Opportunity Vanderbilt, which ensures that any undergraduate with demonstrated need can attend and graduate debt-free.

The university is also partnering with hundreds of organizations across the country to reach students who might not know a Vanderbilt education is accessible to them, and to help give them the tools, information and resources they need to access it.

And once they get to campus, the university is working to ensure they succeed and graduate.
