Presidential & Residential Scholarships

Presidential & Residential Scholarships

New to SUNY Delhi for the 2023-2024 academic year are the prestigious Presidential & Residential Scholar Programs. These scholarships invite all high school students who have been academically accepted to SUNY Delhi with a 93 or above GPA to apply for either opportunity. Since these unique scholarships are applied toward non-tuition expenses, the award amount will not impact eligibility for the NYS Excelsior Scholarship. These scholarships are awarded for four or eight consecutive semesters, depending upon the student’s degree program.
