Presidential Scholars

Each academic year, the prestigious Presidential Scholars Program selects up to twelve Presidential Scholars among new students to SUNY Delhi. Recipients are chosen from local area high schools throughout New York State. When awarding scholarships, special consideration is given to specific majors that are annually designated by the Provost. This unique full tuition scholarship program (less NYS TAP and the SUNY Tuition Credit) was established for accepted regional students who obtain a Regents diploma with a high school GPA of at least 90 or above. 

To identify our scholarship recipients, the applicants will be ranked by criteria that includes high school average, class rank, SAT scores, and ACT scores (if applicable). These top-achieving students are provided with a full-tuition scholarship for four or eight consecutive semesters, depending upon their program and upon their maintenance of at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA.
