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 MS application by the appropriate deadline.
Graduate student, teaching and research assistantships are offered each year in a competitive process to a select number of qualified full-time MS students. 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.
We are pleased to be able to offer the Arthur A. Schomburg Fellowship for high achieving MS underrepresented minority applicants. Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, be enrolled in a UB MS program full-time, and have a cumulative undergraduate GPA minimum of 3.0 or better at enrollment. All eligible students are considered for the award, which consists of a tuition award and a stipend, for a total value of $23,500.
There are numerous other scholarships and fellowships available for highly qualified graduate students. Visit The Graduate School's website for more information.
