    Anyone know anything about these??i.e. who they tend to give them out to (in state/out of state/merit based/needbased/etc.), what they look for? I saw there were about 5 of them listed on their webpage, but was wondering if anyone knew how they tend to be handed out.

    I was offered a full tuition scholarship to Vanderbilt last year. I was out of state, non URM. I didnt have to apply for it separately, they notified me about a month after I got accepted that they were offering it to me. I guess it was based on merit, because they didnt know anything about my financial situation when they gave it out to me. I know Vandy also gives some scholarships for URMs.

    As for the merit based scholarships, i have no idea what they are looking for specifically, the award letter didnt really talk about the selection grounds.

    good luck, i was impressed with vandy

    I applied to Vandy for MD only so it was not part of the NIH/MSTP program.

    I was somewhat skeptical that I would be competitive for MSTP programs, so when I applied I sent applications to both MD only and MD/PhD programs.
