The Alliance for LGBT Equality at UAB is proud to announce that we are seeking applications for the 2013 Student Scholarship. We are offering one (1), $1000 scholarship to a deserving UAB student demonstrating leadership within the queer community. Students interested in applying should download the application packet from our website and submit all materials to the UAB Office of Financial Aid by July 1st, 2013.
Applicants will be evaluated on the totality of their situations, including academic promise and achievement, demonstrated service to the LGBT community, financial need, demonstrated leadership skills, and present and future goals. The primary goal of the Alliance's Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to deserving students who show promise as future leaders of the LGBTA community - at UAB, within Birmingham, and beyond. The application can be completed either in Microsoft Word or on an Adobe PDF. Links to the application may be found in the column to the left.

Scholarship Fund Status
On March 1, 2010, The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) formally approved The Alliance's establishing a sponsored scholarship for deserving students who are enrolled at UAB. In June, 2011, donations to the fund exceeded the $10,000 mark necessary to become endowed, thanks in large part to one very generous anonymous donor.
