Nominate a Student

As a faculty member you are well positioned to identify some of our most outstanding ‎students here at UB. ‎Prestigious fellowships can be within reach of our best students with careful preparation and support; however potential candidates must be identified as early as their freshman year.

The Office of Fellowships and Scholarships strives to identify undergraduate and graduate students ‎who demonstrate exceptional academic ability. We'd love the opportunity to educate them about scholarship and fellowship ‎opportunities and assist them in preparing competitive applications. Faculty are a key part of ‎this process. The familiarity you have with students who take your classes, work with you on ‎research projects or participate in organizations you advise, enable you to identify students ‎who show many of the qualities needed to receive these awards.

Once you nominate a student we will contact them about nationally and internationally competitive fellowships and scholarships.

Additionally the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships hosts the Spark Program, a series of workshops designed to give students the opportunity to assess their strengths, envision their future and create a plan to become competitive for these major fellowships and scholarships. Please encourage your freshmen and sophomore students to apply.
