- Have completed at least 9 hours of graduate study
- Have a current GPA of 3.4 or higher
A completed application will include, among other things, two letters of support (preferably from AUM faculty or staff), a 250-word essay on career objectives and a current resume. Applicants will be notified of their award status by mail.
Scaleback Alabama is here
Make 2018 the year of YOU! The Wellness Center will help you get started and keep you motivated through the 9 weeks of Scaleback Alabam.
In order to participate you must:
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Live in Alabama or work for an Alabama-based company
- Be on a team of 2 individuals
- Register online or visit an official weigh-in site
The Wellness Center will be a private weigh-in site for AUM students and employees. Your team must register and weigh in between Jan. 22–26 from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. and then weigh out between Apr. 2–6 from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. in the AUM Wellness Center. You do not have to be a member of the Wellness Center to gain access to weigh-in; however, with a signed membership agreement and guess pass you will be allowed 9 weeks of access as a non-AUM Wellness Center member employee.
The Wellness Center is offering an AUMazing prize of its own…a one-year membership will be given to the team selected in a random drawing if both team members each lose 10 pounds. Your team may be composed of individuals outside of campus, but they will only be eligible for prizes awarded by Scaleback Alabama.
