Giving to Adelphi

Our Progress


We’re making progress, one story at a time.

“I think we may look at our recent progress as a testimony to the strength of a community with a shared belief in the power of an institution.”

—Robert A. Scott, President, Adelphi University

Our donors are changing the face of Adelphi, and building better student experiences every day. Your generosity has made this ongoing growth possible, and we’re excited to share our progress with you: 


The University continues to maintain its long-standing commitment to keeping an Adelphi education affordable by enhancing scholarship opportunities for deserving students. Last year nearly 90 percent of full-time freshmen received scholarships or need-based grants, and more than 1,200 scholarships (totaling $10 million) were offered to incoming undergraduate students.


In the classroom, Adelphi students seek the intellectual challenges of a rigorous course of study. On stage, they impress audiences in our state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center. On the playing field, students make history—the women’s lacrosse team is the only team in Division II history to win three straight titles. Throughout the community, students make a difference in the lives of others through initiatives such as the Community Fellows Program, which places Adelphi students in internships at nonprofit organizations across Long Island.


One of our greatest assets is our faculty. In recent years, the University has added 119 new faculty members, who are dedicated to sharing their knowledge, mentoring students, and providing them with an education that will prepare them for fulfilling lives and rewarding careers. Adelphi’s professors impact our students—and drive our reputation.


We’re one of the most selective private institutions in the region for undergraduate students. By increasing the endowment for student scholarships and faculty support we can maintain our competitive edge and continue to attract and retain talented and motivated people from diverse backgrounds.

The support of the entire Adelphi community has fueled our growth. Imagine what heights we can reach with your future support.
