Support Chemical and Biological Engineering

Students working on the CBE Chemee Car.

UB chemical and biological engineering students have access to an outstanding educational experience, funded in great part by donations from former students like you. Your support will enhance this experience, by funding lab upgrades, and hands-on student activities and research.

Your impact

We are positioned to solve humanity’s greatest global problems and strengthen the economy and the manufacturing sector in Buffalo and Western New York. By making world-class engineering and applied sciences education affordable and accessible to all exceptional undergraduate and graduate students, we have the power to transform lives, careers and the world in remarkable ways. Please partner with us to take UB Chemical and Biological Engineering  to a new level—as we engineer a better, brighter future around the world.

  • Chemical and Biological Engineering Annual Fund

    At UB Chemical and Biological Engineering, we provide opportunities to collaborate with faculty and researchers across the campus and Western New York's scientific communities. We inspire students to think bigger, and in turn, they discover new energy sources, more efficient vaccines and improve everyday life through health, energy and environmental breakthroughs. A donation to the Chemical and Biological Engineering Annual Fund helps make these accomplishments possible. 

  • Chemical and Biological Engineering Graduate Fellowship Fund

    The Chemical and Biological Engineering Department created the Graduate Fellowship Fund to support outstanding graduate students with an extra level of stipend. Our goal is to create 25 merit-based scholarships, each at the $10,000 level for a total of $250,000 annually. We hope to start funding the global leaders of tomorrow one at a time, and to achieve our goal within the next five years.
