Financial Support

""How do you plan to pay for college? It's something everyone has to think about, no matter your background or situation. Financial support may be available to graduate students through research grants, departmental support, and the UAB BlazerBest Fellowship Program.

The UAB Graduate School awards Blazer Graduate Research Fellowships annually to highly qualified first-year doctoral candidates who are engaged in full-time research. These fellowships provide students with financial support for stipend, tuition, and health insurance for four consecutive academic terms. Students will be supported after completion of the Blazer Graduate Research Fellowship by the faculty mentor's intra- or extramural grant awards, contracts, institutional training grants, individual fellowship awards, or start-up packages in the case of new faculty.

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