Invest in yourself.

To enhance the University at Buffalo's already competitive tuition, we award scholarships, fellowships and assistantships for outstanding, highly motivated students. All awards are merit-based and may be funded for full or partial tuition. 

For priority consideration, submit your completed MBA application by the February 1 deadline.

Scholarships and Fellowships


All admitted full-time MBAs are considered for graduate, teaching and research assistantships and are selected in a competitive process. In these roles, students assist with school or university administration, teaching or undertake research with faculty members. Although responsibilities vary by assignment, assistants generally work 20 hours per week. Graduate and teaching assistants receive a stipend, plus a $7,500 tuition scholarship. Search UB Bizlink and UB Bullseye for assistantship postings.

Opportunities for Graduate Funding

There are many university, national and international-level awards available to fund your education. Visit the Understanding the Funding Process webpage, which provides information on admissions and funding decisions, funding packages and opportunities for funding.
