After checking-out UAB’s resources, here are a few external opportunities that we encourage you to explore.

  1. Check with your parents’ employer(s), or even your potential employer(s), to see if they offer scholarships.
  2. Contact professional or government organizations that are affiliated with your major or desired career field to see if they offer scholarships (i.e. Nurse Corps, National Science Foundation, National Education Association).
  3. Check with local civic organizations or churches to see if they have scholarships for which you may apply (Kiwanis, The Rotary Club, etc.).
  4. Check additional outside resources by using free scholarship search engines, such as www.fastweb.com and www.scholarships.com.

If you are receiving a scholarship from a company or organization outside of UAB, we ask that you please request your scholarship provider to make the check payable to UAB and indicate your name and student number (B0XXXXXXX) on the memo line of the check and/or in the accompanying letter. The donor should also list the academic terms for which the scholarship is intended (i.e. 2017-2018 academic year, fall 2017 only, or spring 2018 only). The check may be mailed to our attention at the following address:

Office of Undergraduate Scholarships
936 Building
1720 2nd Ave S
Birmingham, AL 35294-3704
