  • Financial Aid

    Don’t think you’ll qualify for financial assistance? You may be surprised. Educating yourself on financial aid options—and following the appropriate steps—will ensure that you are considered for the aid available to you.

  • Scholarships and Funding Opportunities

    Students should contact the program to which they were admitted for information concerning additional funding opportunities such as Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships.

    Doctoral Fellowships for Minorities

    The goal of this program is to increase the numbers of doctoral degree-holding underrepresented individuals in faculty positions at UAB and other colleges and universities throughout the United States.

    Graduate School Individual Fellowship Incentive Program

    Many UAB graduate students would be competitive for individual fellowships, but many who are eligible to apply for a fellowship do not apply. The Graduate School has established an incentive plan designed to encourage submission of applications from students enrolled in disciplines in which individual fellowships are available.

    Samuel B. Barker Award

    Each Spring, two students—one at the master's level and one at the doctoral level—who will graduate in the Spring, Summer, or Fall of the calendar year, may be nominated for the Samuel B. Barker Award by their department's graduate program director.

    UAB Graduate Family Assistance Scholarship

    Scholarship funds will be provided to graduate students who have family-related financial commitments that would, if not resolved, prevent them from enrolling in a degree-granting graduate program.

    Ireland Research Travel Awards

    The research travel scholarship, which awards a maximum of $1,000, is designed to enable a student to capture an educational opportunity that doesn’t exist at UAB.
