BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Juniors, seniors and graduate students in the University at Buffalo School of Management who complete credit-bearing internships in Western New York may be eligible to apply for the Western New York Prosperity Scholarship program.

The twelve-month academic scholarships offer a maximum award of $20,000 per student to cover students’ unmet costs to attend UB and complete summer internships at leading companies and industries throughout the region.

Prosperity Scholarships also are available to students in the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Established by the Prentice Family Foundation in 2009, the Prosperity Scholarship program seeks to encourage young, talented professionals to stay in the Western New York region. Of the 18 Prosperity Scholarships granted to UB for the 2009-10 school year, 12 were awarded to School of Management students.

The application deadline for this year’s program is April 1. 

The Wall Street Journal has ranked the UB School of Management No. 9 in the nation among schools with strong regional recruiting bases. In addition, BusinessWeek has ranked the school as one of the country’s top 5 business schools for the fastest return on MBA investment, and Forbes has cited it as one of the best business schools in the U.S. for the return on investment it provides MBA graduates.
