Fellowships, Scholarships, and Jobs

Fellowships and scholarships are designed to attract and support graduate students who have exceptional academic records and potential. These prestigious awards generally include a full or partial tuition scholarship, often include a generous stipend and are built to let the student concentrate on coursework and/or research.  Visit the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships website for more information.

Working through college is more than a source of income, it's your opportunity to meet new people and gain valuable work experience. Visit UB's Career Services website for information about on- and off-campus jobs, including work study, part-time and summer opportunities as well as jobs for international students.

Students admitted to the Arts Management Program will also be eligible for Experiential Learning support, internships, and/or UB fellowships during their tenure.
