Scholarships: Being Smart Pays
The University at Buffalo offers the most valuable merit scholarships in the State University of New York system. We make a commitment of more than $12 million annually to academically talented freshmen from across the nation.
About 25 percent of each incoming class will earn one of these prestigious awards. Most awards are renewable for four years.
If you would like to be considered by Undergraduate Admissions for a merit scholarship, we strongly recommend that you complete and submit your application and all supporting documentation by December 15. The University Honors College manages the Presidential Scholarship selection process and requires a separate application.
Scholarship recipients may also be invited to participate in one of our comprehensive scholarly communities, which offer an even greater breadth and depth of engaging learning opportunities.
Academically exceptional freshmen may earn a four-year UB Presidential Scholarship, the most selective and highly valued award in all of SUNY. The required application is available through the Honors College. Finalists interview on campus. Presidential scholars participate in the Honors College and must maintain rigorous academic standards to retain their award.
High-achieving freshmen are considered for Provost Scholarships. Award amounts are based on academic merit and cost of attendance. No additional application is needed. These scholarships are renewable for either two or four years for students who maintain continuing eligibility requirements.
Empire State Diversity Honors/Daniel Acker Scholarship
