Undergraduate Merit Scholarships
The University at Buffalo offers the most valuable merit scholarships in the State University of New York system. In 2015-2016, we administered more than $330 million in scholarships and aid to our students.
- To be considered by Undergraduate Admissions for a merit scholarship, U.S. students must apply to UB by Dec. 15. International Undergraduate Admissions has separate deadlines. Prospective freshmen majoring in the College of Arts and Sciences academic programs may also be considered for a Dean’s Scholarship. Prospective freshmen admitted to the architecture program who submit a portfolio or design project will be considered for the School of Architecture and Planning Dean’s Scholarship.
- University Honors College manages the Presidential Scholarship, the Millonzi Distinguished Honors Scholarship and the Steven B. Sample Distinguished Honors Scholarship in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences selection processes, which require separate applications and deadlines.
- International Admissions awards scholarships each fall semester to the full-time international students with an F1 student visa at the time of enrollment. No additional scholarship application is needed.
