The Office of International Education provides scholarships to help UB students participate in a University at Buffalo or SUNY study abroad program.

- The award decisions of the committee are final and not subject to appeal.
- Awards will be applied directly to the recipient’s UB student account.
- Scholarship recipients are asked to help UB Study Abroad in promotional activities upon return.
- Recipients of any Office of International Education scholarship will not be considered for future awards.
