Presidential Scholarship

Scholarship Description
UB's top entering freshmen are awarded Presidential Scholarships (formerly Distinguished Honors Scholarships) which cover the full cost of attendance - tuition, fees, housing, board, books, travel and the other school-related expenses - for four years of undergraduate study. Approximately 25 awards are made to new freshmen each year, all of whom are automatically invited to participate in the University Honors College. To be considered, a student must have a combined critical reading and math SAT score of 1470 or better (or a minimum ACT score of 33) and an unweighted high school average of 95 or better. Last year the mean high school average and combined critical reading and math SAT score of presidential scholarship recipients were 98 and 1503, respectively. If you would like to be considered for this scholarship, you should apply to the university by December 31, as scholarship awards will be based on academic credentials received by this date.
