Bama's NMF & NA scholarship is still available for next fall

<p>I rec’d a PM asking if it’s too late to apply. It’s not too late to apply!!! </p>

<p>I spoke with Scholarships this morning to confirm. </p>

<p>The Dec 1st deadline ONLY applies to NMSF and NASF who don’t make finalist. </p>

<p>So, if you’re a likely NMF or N Achievement Finalist (which means that you have the GPA, SAT, etc to make finalist), then Bama will still award you their BIG NMF scholarship once you’re named in February.</p>

<p>You still have to name Bama as number one choice by May 1st. </p>

<p>This fall, Bama enrolled 182 freshmen NMFs and 30 NAs from all over the country. Bama has about 600 National scholars on campus. </p>

<p>And, this fall, over 51% of all freshmen were from out of state. The school is now about 45% OOS. </p>

<p>The NMF and NA scholarship includes:</p>

<p>Free tuition (for OOS student as well)
Free housing (including honors Super Suites)
$1,000 per year
$2,000 study abroad money
iPad (likely whatever the latest version is and a top model…they’ll be purchased in the summer before school starts)</p>

<p>Also, if you’re an Engineering major or Comp Sci major, Bama will give you an additional 2500 per year. Bama has a brand new mega-sized Science and Engineering Complex. </p>

<p>I bumped the thread in the NMF forum and gave similar info. </p>

<p>Yes, son walked through Phase Three of the Engineering complex just before he came home. He's really excited. Anybody know when Phase Four is projected to be finished?</p>

<p>Phase IV is scheduled to be complete a year from this summer.....so Summer 2013 (which sounds far away since it's still 2011....but really only about 18 months away.)</p>
