Financial Aid Opportunities

Blazer Fellows

Highly qualified first-year doctoral students may be eligible for the UAB Graduate School’s Blazer Graduate Fellowships. These fellowships are for full-time students and provides financial support in the form of a monthly stipend, tuition, and health insurance for four consecutive academic terms. At the conclusion of the fellowship, the students will be supported as graduate research assistants by grant awards of the fellow’s mentor, institutional training grants, individual fellowship awards, or start-up packages in the case of new faculty. More information about the Blazer Fellows Program can be found on the Graduate School website.

Research Assistantships

A limited number of research assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis and carry an obligation of 20 work hours per week. Research assistants are assigned to work with faculty members in the School of Business and/or the Department of Health Services Administration to support the teaching and research missions of the University. Assistantships are awarded to incoming students for a period of one year and may be renewed for an additional year based on satisfactory work performance and academic progress in the program. Research assistantships are available only to full-time students and restrict the student from holding other paid positions on or off campus.
