Students should contact the program to which they were admitted for information concerning additional funding opportunities such as Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships. Only currently enrolled UAB students are eligible for the funding opportunities below.

Graduate School Individual Fellowship Incentive Program

Many UAB graduate students would be competitive for individual fellowships, but many who are eligible to apply for a fellowship do not apply. The Graduate School has established an incentive plan designed to encourage submission of applications from students enrolled in disciplines in which individual fellowships are available.

Samuel B. Barker Award

Each Spring, students who will graduate in the Spring, Summer, or Fall of the calendar year, may be nominated for the Samuel B. Barker Award by their department's graduate program director.

UAB Graduate Family Assistance Scholarship

Scholarship funds will be provided to graduate students who have family-related financial commitments that would, if not resolved, prevent them from enrolling in a degree-granting graduate program.

Ireland Research Travel Awards

The research travel scholarship, which awards a maximum of $1,000, is designed to enable a student to capture an educational opportunity that doesn’t exist at UAB.

Spendable earnings from the Compass Bank Mortgage Financial Services Endowed Award in Graduate Education fund will be used to provide financial assistance to exceptional students who are enrolled in a UAB graduate program.
