CAPS Dependent Scholarships

Each year, CAPS awards $500 scholarships to dependents of 15 CAPS members in support of their college education.  Any CAPS member with a child or other dependent family member in college or bound for college in the Fall may apply!

Qualified applicants must be enrolled in an accredited university or community college (but not a vocational school) and complete a CAPS Scholarship Application.

All applications must be submitted by June 1 each year.  The CAPS Member Benefits Committee reviews the applications and selects the scholarship winners. Unfunded submissions from previous years remain eligible this year. The number of scholarship awards per year is based on the number of applicants and availability of funds.

No family may receive more than one CAPS scholarship per lifetime.

This benefit is available only to dependents of CAPS members.  If you aren’t yet a CAPS member, joining is easy. In less than two minutes, using this secure online form, you can become a member and immediately qualify for the many benefits that go with it, including the Dependent Scholarship program.

NOTE: Funding for this benefit is made possible by an endowment unrelated to CAPS dues or fees paid by state scientists.
