UAH graduate students interested in receiving scholarships should submit a scholarship application by December 15th of each year for priority consideration. If you currently have a scholarship, check your scholarship description to determine if submitting a scholarship application each year is required.

UAH Competitive Scholarships

Competitive Scholarships are made available to students through the generosity of alumni and friends of the University. Student eligibility is based on a variety of criteria including academic interests and achievements, special talents, and demonstrated leadership. The UAH Scholarship Application is used to determine eligibility for all competitive scholarships. The priority deadline for submission of this application is December 15th. With their competitive nature, new students are urged to apply soon after admission to the University. Applications received after this date will still be considered for any remaining awards after the initial selection process has been completed.

Our Competitive Scholarships are housed within the undergraduate website and provides a comprehensive list with a detailed description regarding eligibility. Undergraduate and graduate scholarship information is available on this page.
