The Rhodes Scholarships, in short, are investments in individuals rather than in project proposals. Accordingly, applications are sought from talented students without restriction as to their field of academic specialization or career plans although the proposed course of study must be available at the University of Oxford, and the applicant's undergraduate program must provide a sufficient basis for further study in the proposed field. The scholarships, which include all educational costs and living and travel allowances, are awarded to students who exhibit intellectual excellence, leadership, and concern for others.

UB Excellence in Research, Scholarship and Creativity

The UB Awards for Excellence in Research, Scholarship and Creativity recognize outstanding contributions from each decanal area that achieve superiority in presentation, content, and scope, and which therefore merit acknowledgement as efforts worthy of university-wide distinction. The University at Buffalo is pleased to recognize student projects that exhibit the highest characteristics of achievement among this select group. (This began as an undergraduate award category. In 2018, it was expanded so an award is presented to both an undergraduate and a graduate project from each decanal unit.)
