O'Connor Foundation Gift Expands Scholarships for Delaware County Students at SUNY Delhi

Delaware County students and families have a new reason to explore college opportunities close to home thanks to new scholarships for local students at SUNY Delhi. Through a $20,000 gift from the A. Lindsay & Olive B. O'Connor Foundation to the College Foundation at Delhi, Delaware County students attending the college are now eligible for the newly established DelCo Futures scholarship.

The gift from the O'Connor Foundation creates a new source of support for Delaware County students and families interested in pursuing higher education at SUNY Delhi. The new scholarship, open to all academic majors, adds to the O'Connor Foundation's long-established scholarships for Delaware County students enrolled in applied technologies and both undergraduate and graduate nursing programs at the college.

"We are so grateful to our partners at the O'Connor Foundation for making these new scholarships possible," said Dr. Mary Bonderoff, acting president at SUNY Delhi. "Our shared goal is to help expand opportunities for local students to access a high-quality college education. SUNY Delhi offers technical and academic programs in some of the most in-demand industries today."

SUNY Delhi offers over 60 academic programs with options for certificate, associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees. As the SUNY college serving Delaware County, Delhi is now able to offer automatic acceptance to students graduating from Delaware County high schools. Graduating seniors should expect to receive acceptance letters from SUNY in early April.

SUNY Delhi is still accepting applications for Fall 2024. Local students are encouraged to apply soon as some programs may reach capacity. The DelCo Futures scholarship will be available for the incoming class until all funds are expended.
