Our Opportunities

Welcome to the University at Buffalo’s scholarship portal!

The General Application will remain open throughout the fall and spring scholarship application cycles.

This database makes it easy to seek out and apply for campus scholarships, recommending opportunities which best fit your application responses and HUB student profile. When fully operational, hundreds of scholarships funded by UB alumni and friends will be accepting applications, but until then, please search and apply for other scholarship opportunities on your academic departmental website.

University at Buffalo students may sign in using your UBIT credentials and complete a General Application. Follow the red dot action prompts and emails which will be personalized based on your qualifications. Sign in regularly to check your status, since we do not send regret emails until the end of the annual cycle.

Basics to get started are listed here, but the first thing to note is that scholarships are called Opportunities.

Deadline: This is when completed General Applications, Conditional Applications (if you are studying abroad, or in the engineering department), individual scholarship questions and reference letters are due in order to be considered for a scholarship opportunity.

Award: Amounts stated are for general information and are not a guarantee of what you may receive, if selected. Actual scholarship amounts may vary based on recipient eligibility, available funds, and other factors.

Actions: Once you complete and submit the General Application, you will be automatically matched with individual scholarships.If a scholarship indicates “None” under “Action,” you will automatically be considered by the review committee. If you see “Apply” under “Action” you need to complete a Conditional Application, answer specific scholarship questions, and/or provide references in order to be considered. You will see your summary of “Recommended Opportunities” under the Opportunities tab.

Note: Qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship. Even if not specified in the criteria, scholarships are typically reserved for students in good academic standing who are also making satisfactory progress towards a degree.

Keyword searches: For best results, limit to one word or phrase (ex. political science). Do not use comma separators or unrelated strings (ex. math, physics; arts and sciences political science).
