The University of Alabama has three elite First Generation Scholarship Programs, that offer support  and scholarship awards to first generation students.

Currently, the application process for all of our first generation scholarships programs is limited to incoming, in-state freshman students. Our First Generation Scholarship Programs are highly competitive and a limited number of  scholarships awards are available each year. If you are a senior in high school, please use the UA Scholarship Application to apply. Be sure to check the box that indicates you are interested in applying for our first generation scholarships.
