Our Opportunities

Welcome to BSMART, UAB’s Blazer Scholarship Management and Resource Tool.

  • When to Apply: To submit a scholarship application, you must first be admitted to UAB.  Admitted students may begin applying for scholarships on October 1, 2019, by submitting the “General Application.” Applications that are submitted prior to October 1 will not be considered for the 2020 award cycle.
  • How to Apply: Once you complete the “General Application,” you will be matched with scholarships for which you may qualify. Select “Recommended” under “Opportunities” to view those scholarships. If “None” is listed under the “Actions” column, no further action is required for these opportunities. If a number is listed in the “Questions” column, however, additional action is required to receive consideration. Please note that qualifying does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.
  • Browsing All Scholarships: Below is a list of scholarship opportunities within the BSMART system. This list includes all current opportunities, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration.
