Various forms of financial assistance are available to our graduate students, from scholarships and fellowships, to teaching assistantships and tuition assistance.
Assistantships usually require 15 to 20 hours per week in a teaching or research role. Summer opportunities are also available, providing valuable experience as well as additional financial support.
Continuing students who wish to be considered for financial aid for the fall semester should make their requests known before March 1 of the same year. Continuing students who wish to be considered for financial aid for the spring semester should make their requests known before October 1 of the preceding year. Late requests for assistance may be considered if funds are available. Requests should be in the form of a letter addressed to either the Director of Graduate Studies, and should be submitted to the Graduate Academic Coordinator.
Students interested in a TA-ship or SA-ship should submit the form below to the Director of Graduate Studies:

The SEAS Senior Scholar program is an opportunity for undergraduate students at the University at Buffalo to carry out research with a SEAS faculty member. This experience begins during the spring of a student’s senior year and can continue into their graduate program.
Questions about the Senior Scholarship program should be directed to Kellie McBride.
