The UAB application for admission serves as the application for academic scholarships—no additional application materials are required. Students wishing to be considered for academic scholarships should have completed their UAB undergraduate application and should have provided all supporting credentials (official transcript and official ACT and/or SAT scores) no later than December 1st of their senior year.

UAB Engineering scholarships are merit-based, and most are renewable. Support for UAB Engineering scholarships is provided by a number of corporate and private partners—including American Cast Iron Pipe Company (ACIPCO), BE&K, Dupuis Family Trust, and Vulcan Materials.

UAB sophomores and juniors who are declared engineering majors and who hold UAB scholarships are considered for engineering scholarships. These scholarships are awarded based on merit, and, at least in engineering, replace the previous UAB award.
