Grant Funded Programs


Our faculty bring innovation to their clinical practice and research.

Our grant-funded programs will provide students with tuition stipends and other benefits as they are prepared to teach in New York’s high-needs school districts.

SEA Program

Adelphi’s SEA program is a National Science Foundation/NOYCE Scholarship for undergraduate students in our STEP program and graduate science education students that uses Long Island’s natural environment for teaching and provides unique training in science education.
