HonoraBull Scholarship

The HonoraBull Scholarship was developed to support change agents in the Honors College.

Our most civic-minded scholars have the opportunity to apply for the HonoraBull Scholarship which provides them with funds to pursue a project that aims to fulfill a particular need, service or otherwise enhance the community. Entrepreneurship is encouraged and supported through this scholarship opportunity.

The HonoraBull Scholarship is made possible through the fundraising efforts of the HonoraBull Student Philanthropy Team, whose mission is to “to foster a sense of commitment to the Honors College and the success of its students through philanthropic education and activities.” Their aim is to increase student’s philanthropic contributions and provide an opportunity for students to help other students. Annually the student philanthropy team develops and executes a number of fundraisers including Operation BankaBull and the Cardboard Regatta.

Applications (PDF) are accepted on a rolling basis and typically reviewed at the end of each month by the HonoraBull Scholarship Committee (which may be comprised of Honors College students, alumni, faculty and staff). Funded applications typically receive up to $500, though larger awards are possible if warranted.

Please note: All awards received by a student must be reported to the Office of Financial Aid. You will be notified if this award impacts your eligibility for other types of financial assistance. In most cases, your financial aid eligibility will remain unchanged due to the expenses associated with your research.

Donations in Action: Alexandra Dombrowski, Class of 2020

The Breaking Borders Art show raised a total of $880 for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and their work in the Rohingya Refugee camps located in Bangladesh.images from the event showing the sign I love MSF The Rohingya are an ethic group who lived in Burma, up until the past year during which the government and state military attached their communities in an attempt at ethic cleansing. The art show featured works by UB students and other college students in the Buffalo Area. The gallery was full all night and attendance exceeded expectations despite the Buffalo weather. The community came out to support student artists and MSF. We'd like to thank Paula's Donuts for their donation, Revolution Art Gallery for a wonderful venue, and all the people who attended. This event was made possible by the UB Honors College Honorabull scholarship.
