Bass Military Scholars Program

The Bass Military Scholars Program
provides financial aid and programming for meritorious professional students
who are current officers or honorably discharged veterans of the U.S. armed
forces pursuing post-baccalaureate degrees to be awarded from Vanderbilt’s Law
School (J.D. program), Owen Graduate School of Management (M.B.A. program),
Peabody College (M.Ed. program), School of Medicine (M.D. program), and School
of Nursing (M.S.N. program). Officers and veterans participating in the Program
will provide meaningful mentoring for other students at Vanderbilt and expose
the members of the Vanderbilt student body to the commitment, work ethic and
character military officers bring with them to the classroom. This will provide
members of the Vanderbilt student body a better awareness and appreciation of
those military career experiences and the family and lifestyle sacrifices
officers and veterans make. Vanderbilt University is excited to be able to
offer this opportunity to officers and veterans and is looking for a director
who is eager to recruit and support these scholars.

The Bass Military Scholars Program
is part of the Division of Academic Affairs, led by Provost and Vice Chancellor
for Academic Affairs, Susan Wente, Ph.D. The division provides the infrastructure
essential to realizing Vanderbilt’s mission of creating and disseminating
knowledge for the betterment of society. In order to carry out the university’s
mission, the division embraces a vision based on leadership development,
service excellence, and sound infrastructure.
