Our Opportunities

Welcome to the University at Buffalo’s Scholarship Portal!

UB’s Scholarship Portal is a smart shortcut to apply for campus philanthropic scholarships. Log in and complete one application annually to be considered for multiple opportunities. When fully operational, the UB Scholarship Portal will streamline your search for the nearly 900 philanthropic scholarships across campus. Please visit: Financial Aid – Scholarships and check your departmental web site for additional scholarship information.

Starting July 15th, students can complete the annual General Application for the upcoming aid year.

All currently enrolled students may sign into UB’s Scholarship Portal with your UBIT username and password. Your first step is to complete a General Application. Your responses may prompt a request for you to complete a Conditional Application or additional scholarship specific questions. Follow your personalized red action prompts on your dashboard and check back on your application status regularly. If you are selected as a scholarship recipient, you will receive an email from ubscholarships@buffalo.edu. This email will provide you the steps you will need to take for the scholarship to be applied to your student account. All email notifications will be sent to your buffalo.edu email account – please make sure to check your email on a regular basis.

For information on the the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Grant, visit: Financial Aid COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions. Please note that all funds have been exhausted for this grant and no additional funds will be awarded.

We recommend that you set up direct deposit with the university to expedite delivery of any scholarships eligible for a refund. For more information on direct deposit, please visit: Direct Deposit of Refunds

Keyword searches should be limited to one word or phrase (ex. engineering). Do not use comma separators or unrelated strings (ex. math, physics; arts and sciences political science).

Award amounts published are for general information – actual amounts may vary.

Opportunities are scholarships accepting applications.

Recommended Opportunities match with your application responses or HUB credentials, so explore those first and consider answering the supplemental questions. You may apply for any opportunity if you meet the basic qualifications.

Action options are “none” (students are automatically considered if qualified) or “apply” (you need to answer supplemental questions to be considered).

Deadlines are 11:59 PM on the posted date. All application materials, including reference letters must be submitted on time to be considered.

Qualifying for a scholarship is not a guarantee of funding. Even if not specifically stated, scholarships are typically reserved for students in good academic standing who are also making satisfactory progress towards a degree. International students can apply for all scholarship opportunities except where noted.

Questions can be referred to ubscholarships@buffalo.edu.
