Tulane University's Annual Fundraising Concert Benefiting Student Scholarship Support

Rock with the wave…
Roll with the wave!

Oct 20, 2023


a memorable night in NOLA for a great cause!

The 7th annual Tulane fundraising concert will be back again on Friday, October 20, 2023 during Tulane’s Wave ’23 Homecoming, Reunion and Family Weekend! Benefiting student scholarship support, the concert features a rock star line-up of talent from New Orleans and beyond performing live from The Fillmore New Orleans.


The Tipping Point raises significant scholarship dollars to help Tulane attract and support the promising young leaders whose contributions create a vibrant educational environment on our campus and in our community.

Tulane is committed to making a world-class education accessible to all students who qualify to attend by providing a pathway to life-changing opportunities to pursue their passions. 

At Tulane, over 85% of our undergraduate students receive some type of aid. All admitted students are considered for merit-based scholarship, and the review process is need-blind. Then there are need-based aid awards and programs.

We are proud that Tulane offers its students one-of-a-kind learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom. And that Tulane graduates are uniquely prepared for the challenges of the real world.

Thank you to our 2023 Tipping point Sponsors
