    The Blount Scholars Program is an innovative liberal arts initiative structured as a four-year living and learning community at The University of Alabama.  It features small, seminar-style classes, extensive exposure to faculty, and an integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum leading to a minor in Liberal Arts.  In addition to their scholastic pursuits, students are exposed to a wide variety of organized and impromptu social activities.  First-year Blount students, along with many of their upper class counterparts, live and take classes in the Blount Living and Learning Center, a premier campus residence hall specifically designed to integrate social and intellectual life. This integration provides Blount students with the atmosphere of a small liberal arts college in the midst of a major research university.

    Blount students are a diverse group in terms of both their backgrounds and their interests.  They come from all walks of life and every region of the country.  They major in a variety of different disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, hard sciences, and arts as well as in more applied disciplines such as engineering, business, and education.  They belong to a wide array of social organizations and honors societies.  What unites them is curiosity, intellectual engagement, a desire to seize the opportunities available to them at the University, and the conviction that a liberal arts education prepares them not simply for employment, but for a well-rounded and well-informed life.

    Advantages to enrolling in Blount Scholars include:

    Small Classes

    First-year seminars are capped at 15 students; thereafter, seminars are capped at 12 students. Blount students currently enjoy priority course registration.

    Intensive Interaction with Faculty

    Blount courses are taught by award-winning faculty in disciplines across the University. Because of the small course size, Blount students work closely with their professors and receive individualized instruction.

    Scheduling Flexibility

    Because the program is built around the minor, Blount students can easily pursue any major and participate in other organizations and honor societies at the University.  In any given year, approximately 90 percent of Blount students also participate in the Honors College.


    Admission to the program is competitive and any incoming student at the University of Alabama may apply.  The Blount application form can be found athttp://blount.as.ua.edu/apply/We accept applications throughout the year as space in the entering class permits, though we encourage interested students to apply by December 15thfor priority consideration.
