NYC Scholars Program


NYC Scholars allows Adelphi students to deeply engage with one of the world’s great cities.

This new program is open to current Adelphi University undergraduate students who have completed at least 15 credits at Adelphi.  Accepted students will spend a semester studying in the most exciting city anywhere while interning at one of the world’s great cultural, artistic, business or philanthropic organizations. This is an unforgettable way to expand your outlook, learn about global issues, network with Adelphi alumni and prepare for life after college.

You will take engaging, specially designed courses and spend 15 to 20 hours a week in an internship related to your major or an area of interest. You and your fellow NYC Scholars will be housed together in beautiful Brooklyn Heights, just a short distance from our Manhattan Center on Varick Street. Together, you will form a living/learning community, supporting one another and sharing experiences.

This is an incredibly valuable opportunity and a great way to grow, learn and prepare for life after college. And it costs little more than a standard semester at Adelphi.

The NYC Scholars Program is accepting applications for the Spring 2018 semester. Apply by October 1, 2017, to take advantage of this great opportunity.
