UB Alumni Association Scholarships

Leading the charge for the next generation is part of our DNA and we show that through supporting UB students.

Each year the UB Alumni Association awards three scholarships to deserving UB students, continuing their commitment to support the next generation of outstanding UB graduates.

J. Scott Fleming Merit Award

Recognizes leadership efforts through UB extracurricular and volunteer activities.

The J. Scott Fleming Merit Award was established in 1985 as a student-to-student allotment to recognize full-time undergraduate and graduate students for their leadership efforts through extracurricular and volunteer activities at the university. The award honors J. Scott Fleming, who served as executive director of the Office of Alumni Relations (now Alumni Engagement).

Willie R. Evans UBAA Legacy Scholarship

For UB students who are children or grandchildren of UB alumni.

The Willie R. Evans Legacy Scholarship assists enrolled UB students who are children or grandchildren of UB alumni. The amount of the scholarship varies from year to year based on the growth of the endowment. The minimum scholarship is $1,500 and may be awarded to multiple recipients. Scholarships are awarded annually to qualifying full-time students in any academic discipline or course of study. Awards are made without regard to age, race, creed, color, gender, citizenship or religion. The Legacy Scholarship was established in 2008 by the UB Alumni Association and was renamed in honor of alumnus Willie R. Evans in 2009.

Alumnae Scholarship

Recognizes female UB students demonstrating engagement and leadership.

The UB Alumni Association Alumnae Scholarship is awarded to female UB students who have demonstrated engagement and leadership. Scholarships are awarded to qualifying full- or part-time students in any course of study. The amount of the scholarship varies from year to year based on the growth of the endowment. The minimum scholarship is $1,500 and may be awarded to multiple recipients. In 1941, UB alumnae created a scholarship for female students registered in any department or division of the university. In 2010, the UB Alumni Association reintroduced the Alumnae Scholarship.
