Make a donation to the CSTEP Gresham/Staley Excellence Scholarship fund.
This competitive scholarship is funded by donations of alumni, staff and supporters of the CSTEP program in honor of Dr. Mary Gresham and Dr. John Staley who collectively contributed over 50 years towards equity and access on the University of Buffalo campus.
CSTEP is proud to offer two scholarship awards for talented undergraduate CSTEP students who exemplify a commitment to excellence in both their academics and the community. This annual scholarship is given to CSTEP students and graduating seniors who have been accepted into graduate or professional programs at UB. These recipients exemplify a dedication to academic excellence, civic engagement and involvement in CSTEP and the greater Buffalo community.
Now Open to CSTEP Alumni: CSTEP alumni who are currently a graduate or professional student at UB can also apply for the scholarship! In 2021 we awarded 7 CSTEP alumni the Gresham/Staley Scholarship!
Scholarship applications open each March and recipients are announced each May during the Student Recognition Ceremony.
