Presidential Scholars Program

SUNY Delhi's Presidential Scholars Program recognizes the achievement of local students and assists them in pursuing their college education. This honors program ensures that a limited number of students from Delaware and Otsego counties, who have strong academic credentials, may attend the College tuition free.*

The College solicits nominations for the Presidential Scholars Program from high school superintendents within Otsego and Delaware counties. These nominations are based on the criteria set for the program. Eligible students must rank in the top 20 percent of their graduating class, must earn a Regents diploma with a minimum average of 90 percent, and must submit a 350- to 500-word essay highlighting their extracurricular achievements.

The Presidential Scholars Program is designed for students seeking a greater academic challenge given their ability and personal motivation. Qualified students are challenged through specially-designed honors courses that offer an enriched seminar-style learning environment, and that emphasize critical thinking and independent research.

Students must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3, and must take an honors seminar each semester in order to continue receiving the scholarship.

(*Scholarships are awarded for that portion of tuition not covered by other forms of financial aid.)
