Philanthropic support is essential in maintaining and enhancing the distinctive elements of the Honors education at UB. Private funding from visionaries who know the value of an incomparable academic experience and the importance of attracting and retaining top students play a key role in transforming the Honors College and the entire University. We invite you to join fellow Honors College alumni and friends in supporting the Honors College Innovation Fund by giving today. The Innovation Fund has a direct impact on student scholarship in several ways:

Merit Scholarships

Merit scholarships reward exceptional students for their academic achievement. Not only do Merit Scholarships offset tuition, fees and book costs, but they help UB compete for top students from around the world.

Research & Creative Projects

Working closely with faculty, students have the opportunity to develop their own research and creative projects during their undergraduate career. This fund provides grants that allow students to excel and represent UB in cutting-edge research both nationally and internationally.

Performing and Creative Arts Scholarships

These scholarships are awarded to students demonstrating both academic and artistic excellence in Theatre, Visual Studies, Dance, Media Study and Music. Much like Merit Scholarships, Performing and Creative Arts Scholarships enable UB to attract the most talented students.

Study Abroad Scholarships

Study abroad offers students invaluable academic and life experiences. Support helps to defray travel expenses and/or tuition.

Travel Grants for Professional Conferences

Allows students to attend professional conferences where they can present their research and meet with fellow students and professionals in their desired field of study.

Internship Grants

Internship grants provide funding to Honors Scholars who obtain valuable, unpaid internships in their field of study or industry. Due to financial constraints students often forego excellent internship opportunities when a stipend is not provided by the sponsoring entity. Internship grants help to bridge the financial gap and afford the opportunity for meaningful, practical experience.
