Roger Roll Award

Through the generosity of Roger Roll and Mary Garlick Roll, the College of Arts and Sciences has established the Roger Roll Award for students who are enrolled in CAS and are athletes in track and field at UB.  The donors believe that athletics plays an important role in the college experience, and are ardent supporters of a liberal arts education with its emphasis on critical thinking, creativity, and communication.  These skills impact student growth and provide a foundation for lifelong learning and successful careers.

An award amount of $1000 is available for a single student for each deadline.
