Every year, the Alliance gives a $1,000 Scholarship to UAB students who are involved with the community. UAB students can access the scholarship application at UAB's BSMART and logging in. Students can also access the scholarship by going to BlazerNet, then to Student Profile, and clicking on Scholarships at the bottom of the right-hand column.

The deadline for submission of the complete materials is February 1st, 2020.

All applicants are evaluated on the totality of the student's situation, academic achievement, financial need, demonstrated service to the LGBTQ community, demonstrated leadership skills, and present and future goals. Preference is given to applicants who can demonstrate service to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LBGTQ) community.
