The UAB International Scholarship, valued at US$ 5,000 per year, is available to applicants enrolling as first-year, full-time, degree-seeking students. Applicants who graduate from a secondary or high school outside of the United States, have a minimum grade point average of 3.0/4.0, have not enrolled in post-secondary work, and currently live outside of the United States, are automatically considered as soon as they are accepted to UAB. Students must be accepted prior to May 1 for the August intake. All scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are available and are renewable for a total of four years (or eight academic semesters). Students who are receiving governmental scholarships or other external support are not eligible to receive this award.
