The School of Architecture and Planning, in partnership with the university, our alumni, our faculty and staff, and our philanthropic supporters, provides support to our undergraduate students. In addition to tuition scholarships, stipends for travel and supplies, and support for study abroad, our students, like our faculty, are actively engaged in teaching, research, and service—and are rewarded for their hard work.
The University at Buffalo offers the most valuable merit scholarships in the SUNY system. Last year, we administered more than $330 million in scholarships and aid to our students.
