Every year, several awards are made available to undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences, including awards specifically designated for graduates of Buffalo Public High Schools.

Fellowships and scholarships are among the most valuable forms of aid you can receive and are designed to support students who have exceptional academic records and potential.

Ellicott Complex

Experience shows that students and families who take the time to understand their options benefit by receiving the maximum amount of eligible aid. The UB Financial Aid team is ready and willing to provide assistance as you navigate this process. 

Students on North Campus

The Office of Student Accounts provides up-to-date information on tuition and fees by semester. You can also receive walk-in assistance Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm, at the Student Response Center, 1 Capen, North Campus.

Departmental Awards

The Marvin Feldman and Walter Cohen Award

Each spring, the Department of Psychology recognizes the most outstanding undergraduate Honors Thesis with the Marvin Feldman and Walter Cohen Award. Named in honor of two of the department’s most distinguished former faculty, the cash award goes to the undergraduate whose Honors Thesis receives the highest ranking by the student’s examination committee, faculty advisor and the Director of the Honors Program.
