Scholarships

Being smart pays.

The University at Buffalo offers the most valuable merit scholarships in the SUNY system. In 2015-2016, we administered more than $330 million in scholarships and aid to our students.

Prospective freshmen must apply by Dec. 15 to be considered for merit scholarships. The University Honors College manages the Presidential Scholarship, which requires a separate application. Prospective transfer students must apply by Feb. 15 for merit scholarship consideration.
