Scholarships and Awards

Deciding how to pay for your college education is an important decision for you and your family.

The good news is that most UB students receive some form of financial aid, either in the form of grants, loans, scholarships or work study awards.

The University at Buffalo offers the most valuable merit scholarships in the SUNY system. Last year, UB administered $340 million in financial aid and scholarships. On top of that, UB students consistently win more prestigious scholarships and fellowships than students at any other State University of New York (SUNY) institution.

When cost is a deciding factor in attending college, it’s hard to find a better value than UB. Our students receive a top-notch education with tuition at a fraction of the cost of a private college or university of comparable quality. Add to that merit-based scholarships and traditional financial aid, and you have an education that’s as affordable as possible.

Prospective freshmen must apply by Dec. 15 to be considered for merit scholarships.

Art Departmental offers individual merit based scholarships up to $2,000 to currently enrolled art majors. On top of this aid there are several annual awards designated for art-related travel and study, art supplies, tuition help, and general support:

  • Evelyn Lord Rumsey Scholarship
  • Sally Hoskins Potenza Scholarship
  • Frances Morrison Memorial Scholarship
  • Julius Bloom Scholarship
  • Philip C. and Virginia Cuthbert Elliott Painting Scholarship
  • Dennis Domkowski Memorial Scholarship
  • Eugene L. Gaier Award for Excellence in Printmaking
  • Carl E. and Virginia W. Sentz Memorial Award
