Financial Support

How do you plan to pay for graduate school? It's something everyone has to think about, no matter your background or situation.

The UAB Graduate School is the best place to go for guidance on financing your education; financial aid, scholarships, and fellowships; and payment deadlines.

We recommend you start here when considering how to finance your studies:
