The School of Public Health and Health Professions offers tuition scholarships to students who have been admitted to graduate or professional study, will be enrolled on a full-time basis and will contribute to the diversity of the student body in their program.

The Arthur A. Schomburg Fellowship Program is sponsored by New York State and offers support for historically underrepresented students in graduate programs across the university. Students in the program have outstanding academic credentials which contribute to an impressive graduation and retention rate of close to eighty percent. Schomburg Fellows participate in conferences and seminars and present papers in their respective disciplines. Since its inception in 1987, over 500 academically talented students have received support through this Fellowship program.

The Graduate Opportunity Program (GOP; formerly GEOP) provides tuition scholarships to students who graduated from one of the following programs in New York State:

  • Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)
  • Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)
  • CUNY Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge (SEEK) programs

Many degree programs have their own scholarship funds to award to graduate and professional students at their discretion. These awards, which often come from funding that the Graduate School makes available to the deans, vary in amount and eligibility. Please contact your academic department for nomination deadlines, academic requirements and more information.

The UB Presidential Fellowship Program is aimed at enhancing UB’s competitiveness in recruiting outstanding graduate students. To be eligible, a nominee must be a new applicant to a Ph.D. program and must be appointed as a full teaching, graduate, or research assistant.  Nominees must also meet at least one of the outlined academic criteria upon admission.
