Invest in your most valuable asset—yourself.
If you have a strong academic record, are highly motivated and have an unwavering commitment to hard work, UB delivers an exceptional personal, professional and financial return.
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. While awards may be funded for full or partial tuition, most scholarships and fellowships cover a significant portion of graduate tuition.
In addition to those listed below, there are numerous other scholarships and fellowships available for highly qualified graduate students. Visit The Graduate School's website for more information.
Graduate student, teaching and research assistantships are offered each year in a competitive process to a select number of qualified full-time students. Students assist with school or university administration, teach 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 tuition scholarship.
There are many university, national and international-level awards available to fund your education. Schedule an appointment with the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships to help find an opportunity that fits you.
