What About Additional UAB Scholarships?

UAB is pleased to offer IB Scholarships, departmental scholarships, performance scholarships, and more. Students interested in these scholarships should complete the general scholarship application in the Blazer Scholarship Management and Resource Tool (BSMART).  Completing the general application submits student information to many departments on campus for scholarship consideration. Scholarships in BSMART will be posted on September 1, but students can complete the general application beginning August 1.

Important: Some scholarships may require a supplemental application, resume, or letters of recommendation in addition to the general application. Deadlines for these requirements vary and can be found in BSMART.
