Our Opportunities

Welcome to the University at Buffalo’s scholarship portal!

Current students may sign in using your UBIT credentials and complete a General Application and supplemental questions which you may be asked to complete based on your HUB profile and application responses. Follow the red action prompts and watch for alerts from ubscholarships@buffalo.edu regarding new opportunities and deadlines.

Newly admitted students for fall 2019 who have activated your UBIT credentials may sign in and complete a General Application and any other recommended applications, but please note that you will be considered for auto-matching opportunities even if you take no action at all. Newly admitted undergraduates will receive an email invitation from ubscholarships@buffalo.edu if a scholarship you may be eligible for requires a reference or additional narratives.

When fully operational, this portal will simplify your search for the hundreds of philanthropic scholarships managed by various UB departments. In the meantime, please make sure to search for scholarship opportunities on your academic departmental website.

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).
