The Cape Cod Association (CCA) is accepting applications for its 2018 scholarship program. Over the past 10 years, the organization has distributed more than 3,000 awards totaling over $4 million.
The Association, founded in 1851, has invested in the fabric of the region for over 150 years by helping young people achieve success in higher education. Last year, the Association awarded more than $430,000 to 286 local students.
Applicants who were born on and reside on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket are eligible to apply. Academic merit, extracurricular activities and financial need are also considered. Scholarships are offered to graduating high school seniors and college students for up to four years of an undergraduate program. Applicants may attend two- and four-year colleges, technical schools, and community colleges anywhere in the United States. The CCA does not fund graduate education.
Past recipients of a CCA scholarship must reapply by midnight on March 15, 2018. New applicants and those who have not previously received a CCA scholarship must apply by midnight on April 1, 2018. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.
