The Military Order of the Purple Heart has designated The University of Alabama as a “Purple Heart University” for outstanding service to military veterans, service members, dependents and survivors.

Student veterans or active service members with a Purple Heart who are Alabama Residents can receive a scholarship that pays the difference between their GI / Veteran benefits and full tuition (and fees). If their tuition is paid, then they will get an additional $2,500 / year.

To receive the Purple Heart Scholarship please turn in your DD-214 to The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs.
