In 1851, a group of successful gentlemen, all living and working off-Cape, came together to support one another and stave off the loneliness they felt for their beloved Cape. Through the years, their group grew and slowly started offering tuition assistance to other Cape Codders to follow their dreams.
Today, the Cape Cod Association is one of the oldest and largest independent scholarship funds in New England, operating as a supporting organization of The Cape Cod Foundation since 2001. Over the past 10 years, the Cape Cod Association has awarded more than 3,000 scholarships totaling over $4 million to local students.
The Cape Cod Association has its own online scholarship application process, which is open to students who were born on and currently reside on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket.
