U of A Tuscaloosa Coca-Cola First-Generation Scholarship
Due to the generosity of The Coca-Cola Foundation, Coca-Cola First Generation Scholarships will be awarded to twelve incoming freshmen that are first generation college students. Any student whose parents or siblings are not attending nor hold a degree from a college is considered a first generation college student.

First consideration will be given to those with demonstrated financial need; for priority consideration, a student must submit the FAFSA by March 1 of the year in which they are planning to enroll.
Recipients will receive:
- $5,000 per year; renewable for four years if required GPA is maintained (2.8 GPA for freshmen year and 3.0 GPA thereafter)
