The Capstone is proud to train the leaders of today and tomorrow through its offering of more than 150 different master’s, specialist and doctoral degrees. These advanced programs combine cutting-edge research and creative innovation in which the students participate alongside their faculty mentors. Their discoveries help us all address the challenges facing our state, nation and world.
Because of UA’s many assets –a history of grit and determination, an ambitious and growing research agenda and a beautiful campus featuring some of the best scientific equipment in the nation –we can attract the world’s most talented students to our campus. Some pursue their advanced degrees directly after their bachelor’s degree, while others bring years of professional or life experience with them as they retool for the next step in their careers. These graduate students not only contribute to our campus through their teaching or research, but they also reflect well on UA for decades to come as they assume their leadership roles and become legends in their chosen fields.
Other top research universities are also competing to attract these students. We invite you to join us in establishing competitive fellowships, scholarships and professional development programs that will strengthen The University of Alabama’s prominence and ensure that the Capstone is the place these students choose to pursue their goals.
