Students accepted to master’s degree programs in UB’s College of Arts and Sciences for the fall 2017 semester can apply for a $2,500 scholarship. What does $2,500 get you? If you are a full time student, $2,500 would cover your university fees!

Students who can demonstrate that they would contribute to the diversity of the student body, especially those who can demonstrate that they have overcome a disadvantage or other impediment to success in higher education are eligible. Such categorical circumstances may include academic, vocational, social, physical or economic impediments or disadvantaged status that students, as evidenced by their performance as undergraduates, have been able to overcome, or other characteristics that constitute categorical under-representation in their particular graduate program such as gender or racial/ethnic status.

Note that priority for funding is expected to be granted to those who do not already have funding commitments from their academic departments.
