Each spring, the UAB National Alumni Society hosts its annual Scholarship Run presented by Viva Health. Started in 2007, the Scholarship Run has allowed the NAS to raise $975,000 to help support student scholarships. The Scholarship Run has established itself as an exceptional annual run for alumni and friends.

The NAS is a 501(c)(3) committed to serving UAB alumni and students through engaging events and resources. We are humbled to be able to provide student scholarships each year through our fundraising events. This much needed assistance is awarded to a wide range of students including first-year, legacy, and graduate students. Increasing the amount of scholarship dollars provided to students is an instrumental goal of the NAS. This money allows the NAS to assist students from across campus. In 2021-2022, the NAS awarded more than 140 students with scholarships totaling more than $222,000.

Thank you for your support to the UAB National Alumni Society and student scholarships.  Go Blazers!
