Other UB Administered Scholarships

UB’s New Scholarship Portal

You work hard to earn scholarships. UB’s scholarship portal makes it easy to find them. The General Application opens in early October and remains open through the spring term. Once you complete it, you can return regularly to view new opportunities the system has matched with your academic record and responses. New scholarships are added each term. Your application can be updated at any time prior to a published scholarship deadline.

Transitioning to the Scholarship Portal

UB’s scholarship team is working hard to complete the roll out of the portal, which is anticipated for fall 2020. In the meantime, please continue to seek opportunities on departmental and dean’s office websites until all philanthropic scholarships across campus are available on the portal. For your convenience, we have gathered information on some opportunities that can be more challenging to find. They are available to students across a variety of majors who meet the following criteria:

  • demonstrated leadership capacity;
  • involvement in specific community issues;
  • study abroad, internship or other experiential learning plans;
  • involvement in campus organizations or specific research;
  • specific academic honors not associated with a major.

Funds for athletes recruited to UB from all over the world, typically at the top of their division or conference levels in secondary schools, will not be viewable on the on the scholarship portal.
