UB attracts academically talented freshmen from across the country and supports their learning experience with two- and four-year merit-based scholarships starting at $2,500 up to the total cost of attendance, depending on academic performance and residency. This year, the university awarded more than $3.5 million in merit-based scholarships to incoming freshmen. In addition to the financial awards designed to recognize academically talented students, our scholarship recipients may also be invited to participate in one of our several comprehensive scholarly communities, offering educational opportunities and engaging experiences in and out of the classroom.

To be considered for a merit scholarship, we require that you apply to UB by Dec. 1 and submit all of your application materials by Dec. 15.
