Adelphi University strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion.

In that spirit, we are proud to support the #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign. This started as a message of welcome from US higher education institutions to international students, but has turned into so much more than that. With open arms, Adelphi University has committed to participating in the #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship program.

Starting for the Fall 2019 semester, Adelphi University, a major metropolitan university less than an hour from New York City, will be offering two first-year international students renewable tuition scholarships of $28,000. This scholarship will not be an addition to any merit-scholarship the recipient receives from Adelphi University not to exceed $28,000. Eligibility for consideration requires that students are not US citizens or permanent residents. International students graduating from either a U.S., or Non-U.S., High School are welcome to apply.

To apply for the scholarship, you must:

  • complete your application to Adelphi University, including all requested documents
  • Complete the #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship application by February 15, 2021
  • Submit an essay or another form of media focusing on this year’s theme of leadership. Your scholarship application and supporting documents may be emailed to

Our small classes and diverse student body have already attracted students from 64 countries. We are excited to welcome even more!
