Bama Houston scholarships help Houston-area students attend The University of Alabama
All Houston-area students admitted to The University of Alabama by December 15, and who have submitted the UA Application for Scholarships via myBama.ua.edu portal, are considered for our scholarships.
Each spring, the Houston Alumni Chapter Scholarship Committee initially asks for confirmation, via email, of a continuing desire to enroll at UA from each applicant. The committee then reviews these students’ applications based on criteria set for each scholarship. Details are below. Number of recipients and award amounts vary each year based on projected endowment income. (Note: For the 2020-21 academic year, no awards will be made for the Houston, Texas Alumni Chapter Endowed Scholarship so as to align awards with annual earnings.)
During the 2019-2020 academic year, 16 outstanding Houston-area students are receiving scholarship supporting totaling $22,000 from the Houston alumni chapter.
