UAB provides general scholarship opportunities to incoming and currently enrolled students through the Blazer Scholarship Management And Resource Tool (BSMART). BSMART will allow students to easily search for scholarships and review requirements to determine eligibility, and ultimately apply.

To be eligible for regional scholarships at UAB, admitted students must first log in to BSMART and submit the General Application. Supplemental questions will then be accessible for all additional scholarships for which you may qualify. Deadlines vary, but typically range from February 1 to April 1.
