Scholarships and Awards

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.

  4. The Class of 1981 Medical Alumni Scholarship

College of Medicine Dean's Scholarships may be renewable for each of the four years of medical school.

The scholarship covers the approximate cost of attendance for all four years of medical school.
