Nationally Competitive Fellowship and Scholarship Advisement

There are a number of prestigious national and international scholarship and fellowship award opportunities which carry substantial undergraduate or graduate level funding. These include programs such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Gates Cambridge, Truman, Udall, Goldwater, National Science Foundation among others.

The University at Buffalo Honors College administers the application process university-wide for major fellowship and scholarship awards. Please note that affiliation with the University Honors College as an Honors Scholar is not required. Most of these awards require a university endorsement before the applications can be forwarded to the final levels of competition.

Advance preparation for these awards is essential and may begin in the student’s freshman year. To help students prepare competitive applications, the University Honors College offers individual advising assistance to all UB students in determining the appropriate fellowship or scholarship students should pursue, developing a competitive profile, selecting recommenders, preparing compelling personal statements, interviewing and developing project proposals or proposed programs of study.

Students may also view these fellowships and scholarships online at the University Honors College site or contact Hadar Borden, University Honors College, University at Buffalo, 214 Talbert Hall, Buffalo, NY 14260-1700, (716) 645-3020.
