Who We Are

Established in 2011, we are a group of around 20 young alumni of the UAB School of Health Professions who are committed to connecting SHP alumni; fostering relationships between SHP constituents; and financially supporting new SHP graduates through the Junior Advisory Board Endowed Scholarship Award. We raise money for the scholarship in part by hosting an annual dodgeball tournament called Dodging for Degrees.

 

Apply for our Scholarship

Every year we award graduating SHP students scholarships to help with the costs associated with launching a career including professional membership fees, licensing exam fees, and interview expenses as deemed appropriate. The annual honors range from $500 - $1,000 and are awarded to those graduating within the current calendar year.

If you have questions about the scholarship, or would like to support our efforts, please contact Amanda Sherman, SHP liaison, at asherman@uab.edu or 205-975-8415.
