The University of South Alabama College of Medicine is pleased to grant a number of scholarships and awards based on academic performance and financial need. Other foundation-based scholarships are available by independent application based on selective criteria which include diversity, community residence, and a commitment to primary care practice in underserved communities. More information regarding these opportunities is available through the College of Medicine Office of Admissions.
All incoming freshman medical students are considered for the following scholarships:
College of Medicine Dean's and Crampton Trust Scholarships may be renewable for each of the four years of medical school. Other renewable scholarships are limited to students who are from specific counties in Alabama (Turner Trust Scholarships) or who are committed to practice in an underserved area of the state (Ernest G. DeBakey Scholarships).
Students from Houston, Dale, Henry and Geneva counties are eligible for the W. Hudson and Sarah E. Turner Trust Medical Scholarships.
A number of additional scholarships are available for students who already are enrolled in the medical school at the University of South Alabama. The College of Medicine is deeply appreciative of the generous support of the individuals, organizations and foundations that provide funding for all of these scholarships.
