The deadline has been extended to April 17, 2019 for the Buffalo Urban League's 2019 scholarships program. Students can apply to receive money for college and/or advanced training programs, according to a press release. The scholarship is sponsored by National Fuel, community leaders, families and organizations. Two students will receive scholarships of $15,000 per year, for four years, each. Another $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to one student.

“The Buffalo Urban League scholarships are an investment in the education of graduates from our community so that they are prepared to be economically self-sufficient through employment and/or as entrepreneurs. Each year, through generous donors, we are able to award scholarships to deserving high school and High School Equivalency (HSE, formerly GED) graduates,” said Brenda McDuffie, President & CEO of the Buffalo Urban League. “Last year we were fortunate to award 204 scholarships to the Class of 2018. This year, we hope to award even more.”
