Aaron N. Bloch and Gino Calvi Memorial Scholarships for Honors Scholars

Posted by Tim on June 5, 2014 in Honors College Scholarships, Scholarship Opportunities

The Honors College is the proud beneficiary of two scholarships given annually to recognize honors students with outstanding leadership potential – the Aaron N. Bloch Memorial Scholarship and the Gino Calvi Memorial Scholarship.  The Bloch Scholarship was established by his family after his untimely death while serving as Provost at UB.  The Calvi Scholarship was created by his family and friends after Mr. Calvi’s untimely death in the World Trade Center disaster.  Mr. Calvi and his wife were undergraduates at UB.  Both scholarships have been made available to Honors Scholars who have recently finished their sophomore year of study at UB.

The Bloch Scholarship states that:  “Specifically the award shall be given annually to a student in the University Honors College who demonstrates unusual creativity and independence of mind, and who shares promise of benefiting humanity within his or her lifetime.”  The value of the award for the 2014 cycle will be $600.00.

The Calvi Scholarship states that:  “The award shall be given annually to a student in the University Honors College who demonstrates outstanding leadership qualities and who shows promise of benefiting humanity within his or her lifetime.”  The value of this award for the 2014 cycle will be $2,000.00.

With these parameters in mind, we are seeking applications for these awards from among the Honors Scholars who have just completed their sophomore year (four semesters of study at UB).  If you wish to apply for either or both scholarships, please forward to the Honors office by June 30, 2014, a two-page statement of your goals and a resume listing the experiences you feel meet the specified requirements. Send your information electronically, in pdf format, to honors@buffalo.edu.   If you apply for both scholarships, please send two separate applications noting the scholarship in each statement.

If you have any questions, please contact the Honors College at 716-645-3020.
