CAPED Scholarship Application Process & Timeline

UPDATE: Please check back April 2021 for updates on next year’s scholarship! We have completed our 2020 Scholarship Cycle and are not currently accepting applications.

*For best results, use Chrome as your browser for the application process!

Before you apply, review General Eligibility Requirements and Scholarship Descriptions to ensure you are an appropriate candidate for the scholarship(s) for which you are applying.

You CANNOT save your application and return to it at a later time. It is recommended to complete your standard essays, supplemental essays, and gather your necessary verification documents prior to beginning the online application process.

You may apply for up to a maximum of 3 scholarships. However, selected applicants will only receive 1 scholarship award. Only 1 CAPED Scholarship Application is necessary to apply to multiple scholarships.

Review the Application Instructions and complete a CAPED Scholarship Application.

The deadline for 2020 CAPED Scholarship Application submissions is August 31, 2020 at 11:59pm PST. There will be no deadline extensions, no exceptions.

CAPED Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the CAPED Scholarship Review Committee in Summer 2020.

Scholarship award winners will be notified at the beginning of October 2020. Awardees will be asked to submit the following: a brief video message to be shown at the 2020 CAPED Convention, proof of Fall 2020 California college/university enrollment, and a W-9 Form.

Applicants not selected for award will be notified via email at the beginning of October 2020. There is no appeal process and further inquiries regarding award decisions will not be addressed.
