Internship Fellowships

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.

WNY Prosperity Fellowship

The Prentice Family Foundation’s Western New York Prosperity Fellowship Program is a truly unique program for undergraduate and graduate students with an entrepreneurial drive who want to make a difference in Western New York. Each fellow is awarded up to $25,000 in scholarship and internship support for an academic year, based on demonstrated financial need. This fellowship is facilitated by UB's Blackstone Launchpad. If you are interested in applying, visit the WNY Prosperity Fellows web page for more information. 

Social Impact Fellows

Through UB's Social Impact Fellows program, students from the School of Management, School of Social Work, School of Public Health and Health Professions, and the College of Arts and Sciences spend the summer learning about social innovation in Western New York. This interdisciplinary program matches 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 the Julia and Maxwell Savasta Social Innovation Fund, 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 including Fred and Donna Saia, Sujata Yalamanchili and Kent Roberts, Paul Tesluk and Megan Hurley, Maureen Hammett and Rober Orrange, and Nancy Smyth; and has been featured on the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) website.  

Jordan A. Daniels Nonprofit Board Fellowship

The Jordan A. Daniels Nonprofit Board Fellowship 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 fellowship's aim 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 Jordan A. Daniels Nonprofit Board Fellowship is facilitated by the School of Management’s Center for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (CLOE).
