Fellowships & Scholarships

The applications for the undergraduate research fellowships are now open. The deadline is 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 29, 2019. Learn more about the fellowships. The application can be found here.

Our generous alumni and friends have established fellowship and scholarship programs aimed at enhancing the educational experiences of our undergraduate students. These fellowships and scholarships are open to undergraduates who are majors and/or intending to major in Biological Sciences and are interested in conducting research. We strongly encourage all our students to consider applying for one or more of these fellowships.

Note that there are fellowships available for both Junior and Sophomore level applicants. The application is relatively short and is straightforward. Applications will be reviewed by the UB Biology faculty.
