Transfer Student Scholarship Information
Community scholarships are a critical source of funding for students transitioning from one campus to another, since institutional scholarships do not move with you from one campus to another, even within SUNY. Once you earn your first semester grades at UB, you can compete for hundreds of philanthropic funds established by our alumni and friends, by using the UB Scholarship Portal. Our guidance on New York State scholarships will be helpful to transfer students who reside in New York.
