The Adelphi Graduate Merit Scholarship is offered exclusively to high-achieving graduate students who have been fully admitted into an eligible program and begin their graduate program in the summer 2023, fall of 2023, or spring of 2024. Students may choose to take 6 credits–8 credits per semester or enroll in 9 or more credits per semester at the Garden City campus, our centers in Hauppauge, Manhattan, Hudson Valley or select online programs.
You will automatically be considered upon receipt of your complete graduate admissions application. Students are encouraged to file the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 but no later than the priority deadline to ensure maximum eligibility for other sources of financial aid.
To be eligible, you must be accepted into an eligible graduate program, and enroll as a new Adelphi graduate student.
This award will be disbursed throughout the course of your graduate study and each semester’s award amount will be based on your enrollment status on a prorated basis each semester based upon your full time(minimum of 9 credits per semester) or part time(6-8 credits per semester) enrollment status.
(Please note that all award terms listed below must be met each semester to receive this award):
- The level of your award will depend on your actual enrollment.
- This award in combination with other tuition awards cannot exceed the costs for tuition and fees.
- This award may not be combined with any other forms of scholarships, grants, remission or assistantships. If the amount of the Adelphi University Graduate Merit Scholarship exceeds any of the above-mentioned forms of institutional aid, then this scholarship will replace any award of a lower amount.
Eligible students will receive a scholarship letter with their letter of acceptance. Recipients who have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and are eligible for federal financial aid will also receive a Financial Assistance Plan stating the amount of the award.
