B. 1140 or higher (Evidenced-based reading and writing + math) SAT score or 23 or higher composite ACT score

The award is $1,000 for the year and is non-renewable but stackable with our Merit-based Scholarships.
Incoming fall transfer students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher and who have earned a minimum of 30 earned credit hours would receive $1,000 for the year.
In the fall semester, the student would receive $500 and if they earn a 3.25 GPA or higher in their first semester at Buffalo State, they will receive the additional $500 for the spring semester.
International students are also eligible for our Presidential and Provost scholarships provided they meet the minimum required high school average and standardized test scores (ACT/SAT), and more scholarship opportunities are available for current and newly accepted first-year and transfer students. These scholarships are based on specific criteria, including academic merit, financial need, field of study, or a combination of criteria. Scholarship funding is made possible through donations from alumni and friends of the college who value a Buffalo State education. For more information, visit:

Living in Buffalo, New York
In the early 1900s, Buffalo was a beacon of industry; located on Lake Erie, Buffalo was a hub of transport for goods between the East Coast and the Midwest. The Great Depression sparked the slow decline of Buffalo`s lofty economic status, but the region is now once again on the rise.
Today, a rapidly developing waterfront and one of the nation`s most advanced medical corridors, located in the heart of downtown, are just two signs that this Rust Belt area is experiencing a renaissance. An increasing number of new businesses are benefitting from partnerships with the local government. Also, the region has seen increased development including the waterfront HarborCenter hockey center.
Buffalo has a neighborly feel to it. Residents can gather in local pubs or top-tier restaurants. Tree-lined avenues connect residents to each other, and traffic is more manageable in the region than in larger metro areas like New York City. And Buffalo is only 20 miles away from an international tourism destination: Niagara Falls. As for those long winters, there`s excellent skiing less than an hour from downtown.
