Note: Newly admitted students are considered for scholarships based on their admissions application and are not required to complete a scholarship application unless otherwise noted.

There is a two-step process to be considered for the Heersink School of Medicine institutional scholarship:

Step One: Complete the Scholarship Application

Log into BSMART using your BlazerID and password to submit a scholarship application. The application consists of six questions. You are not required to submit a resume or letters of recommendation.

Step Two: Complete the Free Application Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Scholarship applicants and recipients must provide financial information by completing the FAFSA annually.

You must include parental information on your application if you are under 26 (the previous policy was age 30). If you are under 26 and married, you are not required to submit parental information, but you must provide your spouse’s information on the FAFSA.

Including parental or spouse information is the policy of the UAB Financial Aid Office for determining the financial need for scholarships. If parental or spouse information is not included, you will not be considered for need-based scholarships.
