Scholarships can make all the difference.

Scholarship funds are invaluable to the students who receive them. But scholarships are also an opportunity for alumni and friends who care about Adelphi. They offer members of the University community a way to share their belief in the power of education and ensure that talented, deserving students who hope to complete their education at Adelphi can do so.

Meet some of the donors who continue to open doors of opportunity to students through their generous support of scholarships at Adelphi.

Donor funded scholarships are awarded through Student Financial Services in consultation with the School or Department. Contact your financial aid counselor should you have any questions or require additional assistance.
