The UAB NAS is a nonprofit organization that provides an outlet for graduates to network and give back to their alma mater. As UAB continues to receive national accolades, so do UAB graduates. This year, the NAS will award more than $750,000 in scholarships, gifts and grants to the university. Providing much-needed scholarship assistance to UAB students is a valuable way for the NAS to significantly affect the lives of future graduates. Community support will allow the NAS to provide even more opportunities for students, faculty, staff and alumni.
