The School of Nursing at UAB has an excellent scholarship program in which many students participate. The School currently has a 4.5 million dollar endowed fund that supports nursing scholarships annually. Because of the size of some of these scholarship endowments, the school is able to award multiple students scholarships from the same endowed fund. In 2008, the School awarded scholarships to 112 of 213 students who completed the application process for more than $271,000 in scholarship monies.

The scholarship application process is simple. One application is needed to be considered for all undergraduate or graduate scholarships except the Marie L. O'Koren Alumni Association Scholarship, Mable E. Lamb Endowed Nursing Scholarship and the Gladys F. Colvin Endowed Scholarship for PhD Study. Please see individual application for eligibility requirements / Scholarship Applications.
A scholarship committee composed of faculty members and scholarship donors review each application, essay, referrals (and program of study if required). Scholarships are awarded two times year - spring and fall semesters.
