A scholarship is a form of gift assistance that does not need to be repaid. Alabama State University awards scholarships on a competitive basis to undergraduate students who enroll full time in any of its six colleges:
In Alabama, most of the available grants and scholarships are administered by the University of Alabama’s Nursing School, which assists students with completing the grant application forms and also announces exactly when the applications’ submission deadlines are.
While less common than undergraduate scholarships, scholarships for graduate students are available. Graduate students rely heavily on fellowships or assistantships - especially in high-need areas like nursing or teaching - but these aren’t available to everyone and don’t always cover a graduate student’s living expenses. Thankfully, a number of scholarship providers are willing to help graduate students finish the last leg of their educational journeys by providing a bit of extra funding. Consider all of the options you already would when you were funding your undergraduate education (essay scholarships, merit-based awards, student and career-specific scholarships, etc.) but expand your search to organizations and sponsorship opportunities. Already lodged in a profession? Find out what incentives your employer offers for employees pursuing an advanced degree: Many employers offer some form of tuition reimbursement and while you’ll probably need to remain at that company for some time once you’ve complete your graduate degree, it could be a good deal if you were planning to do so anyway.
The committees that award scholarships tend to choose students who stand out in some way from the vast majority. While conventional scholarship judges look for athletic abilities or high GPAs, the committees that choose the winners of weird scholarships have their eye out for unique students. There are hundreds of these scholarships and they look for students with some attribute or talent that is unusual.
Do your research, because you don’t necessarily need to add to that student loan debt you incurred during your undergraduate career. Check out our examples of scholarships and financial aid opportunities targeting graduate students and for more information on scholarships based on other criteria, conduct a free scholarship search because many scholarships are open to both undergraduates and graduates.
With this grant from the state of Alabama, students can receive $1,200. The award is available to both part-time and full-time students. In order to be eligible, applicants must attend a pre-approved university or college. Women can apply for the grant through their school’s financial aid department.
Upon graduation, women must work for at least four years in a low-income school. Before getting the grant, students sign an agreement that they will complete a four-year teaching requirement within eight years of graduating. If a woman does not complete this four-year requirement, her grant is switched to an unsubsidized Stafford Loan. Not only does the grant need to be paid back, but there will also be interest due.

I am writing because I am working on my Ph.D. in Education and only have about a year left. I have exhausted all of my student loans. I have recently been diagnosed with an illness that only progresses. I am in dyer need for grants to help me pay for my remaining year of tuition. I have begun writing my dissertation, we have sold all of our assets, to pay for three quarters, but have nothing left to give. I promised my 13 year old son that I would finish before anything happened to me and I am sticking to that promise. One medication alone costs me $1000.00 per month that I must take for the rest of my life. Luckily my health insurance covers a portion of that. ANY assistance would be greatly appreciated.
