Investing in your professional development is an investment in your career success. And the funding opportunities below can help support your investment.
The School of Management offers financial support for students interested in traveling to national conferences, competitions or professional development events during the academic year. These can be life changing, “wow” experiences for a student, but they can also be costly. By submitting an application to the Wow Fund, you will be considered for funding to help offset the costs of your travel. All undergraduate, graduate and PhD students in the School of Management are eligible to apply for Wow funds.
Applications for the Wow Fund are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the academic year. The application is live in BizLink.
Our team is proud to help provide students with the opportunity to participate in collaborative experiential learning programs that help defray the cost of summer internship tuition.

Through UB's Social Impact Fellows program, students from the School of Management, School of Social Work and College of Arts and Sciences spend the summer learning about social innovation in Western New York. This interdisciplinary program matches MBA, MSW and College of Arts and Sciences graduate students with nonprofit organizations to collaborate on projects that impact the community in real-time. Students learn about pressing social issues while embracing diverse styles and educational backgrounds of their team; as well as gaining insights and respect for the populations served by their partner organizations.
This popular program has received philanthropic support from the Charles D. and Mary A. Bauer Family Foundation, the School of Management Alumni Association, the University at Buffalo's President’s Circle and several generous alumni and friends of the university; and has been featured on the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) website.
The Nonprofit Board Fellowship (NBF) introduces MBA students to the intrinsic value of board service, through a foundational curriculum that blends the concepts of social impact, servant leadership and professional development, combined with an academic year of service as a board member intern with a local nonprofit organization. The aim of the NBF is to develop a diverse group of informed, community-oriented leaders who understand the importance of good governance; and are both prepared and motivated to serve the WNY nonprofit community. Fellows who successfully complete the program will earn a Board Leadership Micro-credential.
The Nonprofit Board Fellowship is a fully-funded collaborative program facilitated by the School of Management’s Center for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (CLOE), and the Internships and Experiential Learning program in the Career Resource Center. Initially launched in summer 2020, future phases of this program will seek to partner with additional schools across UB.
