Available Undergraduate Fellowships for 2017/18

Our generous alumni and friends have established fellowship and scholarship programs aimed at enhancing the educational experiences of our undergraduate students. These fellowships and scholarships are open to undergraduates who are majors and/or intending to major in Biological Sciences and are interested in conducting research. We strongly encourage all our students to consider applying for one or more of these fellowships. The application is relatively short and is straightforward. They will be reviewed by the UB Biology faculty. The instructions can be found under specific links below.
