Martin J. Stovall Promises Scholarship

The Martin J. Stovall Promises Scholarship (The Promises Scholarship) was established Fall 2018 in honor of Martin J. Stovall, a University of Alabama (UA) student who succumbed to the disease of addiction in 2016.  The Promises scholarship was initiated by a UA CRC student to honor the life of his friend.  The goal of The Promises Scholarship is to ease the financial barrier for re-entry to college and afford a student in early recovery the opportunity to attend UA, maintain their sobriety through participation in the UA Collegiate Recovery Community and obtain a degree. Preference should be given to those who need financial support in order to attend UA, those that show a strong desire to receive an education, and those that have established goals that emphasize recovery, community and academics.
