The UB Engineering Alumni Association (EAA) awards scholarships to engineering students who demonstrate leadership skills through involvement in campus and/or community activities as well as scholastic accomplishment.
All junior and senior (by year, not credit hours) and graduate students in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in good standing are eligible to apply. Multiple scholarships are available.
The scholarships recognize "leaders in excellence" and aim to encourage students to develop engineering spirit and loyalty to the school. The program was established in 1992 and is funded through generous donations received from UB’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences alumni.
The application deadline is typically set in mid-September.
Maliheh Karamigolbaghi, a PhD student in Civil Engineering, is the 2018 recipient of the Professor Emeritus Howard Strauss Memorial Scholarship. The award honors Howard Strauss, the founding faculty advisor of the UB Engineering and Applied Sciences Alumni Association as well as a founding faculty member of the school. It is the association’s largest scholarship.
