Buffalo State Study Abroad Scholarship Fund

Buffalo State Study Abroad Scholarship Fund


The purpose of the Study Abroad Scholarship Fund is to provide financial awards to meritorious students participating in Buffalo State international study programs and to contribute to promotional activities for these programs.  Students must be matriculated at Buffalo State at the time of the scholarship application.

Meritorious candidates will be identified on the basis of:

  • GPA of 3.0 and above (must have completed at least one semester at Buffalo State)
  • Relevance of overseas study to student's academic program and career goals
  • Service, activities, interests, work experience
  • Essay (refer to application for details)


Scholarships of varying amounts will be awarded.

Awards will depend upon merit and need (particularly the gap between financial aid available and the cost of the program – full-time students are normally able to demonstrate greater need).

The Study Abroad Scholarship Committee will review all applications and make all decisions regarding the awarding of scholarships under this program.
