The Honors College offers two distinct scholarship awards: Presidential Scholarships and the Millonzi Distinguished Honors Scholarship. In addition, Honors students may be eligible for the Provost Scholarship, awarded by the Office of Admissions. To be considered for all merit-based scholarships we recommend that you apply to UB by December 1 and submit all of the required supporting documents UB requires (test scores, transcripts and letters of recommendation) by December 15, as scholarship awards will be based on academic credentials received by this date.
The Presidential Scholarship
UB’s top entering freshmen are awarded Presidential Scholarships. This scholarship is the most valuable scholarship offered within the SUNY system and is renewable for four years of undergraduate study. To be competitive for this award, students must show outstanding academic merit and typically present a minimum unweighted high school average of 95 and a combined SAT critical reading and math score of at least 1470 or an ACT score of 33. Students who receive Presidential Scholarships are automatically admitted to the Honors College.
