UAB Education Abroad Scholarship Match Initiative

Studying abroad is one of the most transformational experiences for a UAB student. Exploring another culture shapes the way students see the world—and changes how they live in it. This life-defining experience lets students serve as ambassadors for UAB and Birmingham in the communities where they live and learn. UAB offers more than 170 education-abroad programs in 53 countries, so no matter what our students choose to study or where they want to learn, they can discover something new.

Your Support Can Go Farther

Scholarships eliminate one of the largest and most common barriers to a student’s education abroad. With scholarship support, more students can benefit from this transformational experience. Studies show that students who study abroad return with higher levels of maturity and self-confidence, an increased interest in a career direction, and a unique skillset for success in the global economy and their future careers.

UAB places a high priority on providing students with this transformative learning experience. To expand our ability to support education abroad, UAB is creating a $250,000 matching opportunity. This means your gift will have double the impact, allowing more students to go abroad than ever before.

The first $250,000 in spendable gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the university for a potential of $500,000 in study-abroad support, which will benefit more than 200 students.

Your gift could open up a world of experience and opportunity at UAB. Thank you for your partnership with UAB and for all you do to strengthen this university and transform the quality of every student experience—on-campus and around the world.
