Hi, I'm a high school senior who applied for the Ingram Scholarship at Vanderbilt, and I noticed there was no thread for this yet. When do the scholarship finalists get released? The finalist visit weekend is Feb 17-19, but there has still be no word on notification. Thanks

    Last year the finalists were notified 3 weeks before the Interview weekend. The emails were sent out on a Saturday night so notifications could go out this weekend. They do ask finalists to refrain from sharing their selection on social media until all finalists are notified so you might not see any posts about it right away.

    @Sox666 Were you a finalist? Is it possible they could send it this week, given the fact that it's closer than 3 weeks to the interview weekend? Do they send emails to people who don't get finalist status? Thank you so much for the help

    My S#1 is an Ingram Scholar. Sure it is possible they send it during the week. I only know what they did last year so if they follow the same pattern finalists should receive an email this weekend. If I remember correctly they do not send out emails to those who are not finalists until after the scholars are selected. One of my S#1's classmates was not a finalist for Ingram but she did end up receiving the Cornelius Scholarship! Did you apply for that too?

    @Sox666 Thanks for the information. I did. Keeping my fingers crossed

    I haven't received an email (checked spam as well), which––I'm assuming––means I didn't get selected as a finalist ;(. Their website (https://www.vanderbilt.edu/ingram/apply/key-dates.php) still says "TBD 2019" for the finalist notification date.

    No one else from my school applied, so I don't have someone to check with. Has anyone received anything from Vandy regarding their status? Thanks

    @TnRiver You seem like a great guy. Hope things go well for you.

    I called the financial aid office who said that the committee is still meeting to iron out the list of finalists. In terms of a time frame, they said it could be anytime from now until the week of the 11th.

    Oh boy, that seems pretty late, isn't it? If the interview weekend is on the 17th, that's quite the late notice. Do you know if they cover travel costs?
  • JustLetMeInPlzJustLetMeInPlz Registered User Posts: 35 Junior Member
    I know nothing more than what's on the website. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

    Travel costs are covered for finalists. @JustLetMeInPlz I would think at this point all the finalists have been notified. Current Vandy students can also apply and I believe they have until mid February to get their applications submitted. Maybe that is why the financial aid office said the list was still being finalized? Current scholars participate in the interview weekend and host the finalists in their dorms. I think my S#1 said they were getting info on who they were hosting at the end of this week.

    I know how stressful this whole process can be. My S#1 was flat out rejected from his "dream" school and wait listed at his other top two schools. Vanderbilt has turned out to be a perfect fit for him and he is very happy there. It doesn't help to hear this now but I promise you things have a way of working out. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions and still keeping my fingers crossed for you for the Cornelius Scholarship!!

    Has anyone gotten a rejection email yet? I feel like they would have sent them out by now, but I have not received one.
  • FLtitan1217FLtitan1217 Registered User Posts: 29 Junior Member
    Nope, I haven't @1232019
