New Cappex College Scholarships!

The headline says it all. Just as the biggest round of Cappex college scholarships expire, we’re coming back with a host of new awards.

You won’t find college scholarships like these anywhere else. There are a few important details to note, so pay attention.

First, our brand new Standout Talent Scholarship. What makes you stand out? Don’t just tell us. Show us! Post videos and photos of your amazing talents, whatever they may be, online and send them to Feel free to use sites like YouTube and Flickr. If you’re a writer, post something on your blog or send it straight to us. We’ll post the top submission here, and the winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Our “GPA Isn’t Everything” scholarship is back. Not everyone has a 4.0 – the last winner of this scholarship didn’t – but anyone can volunteer or be a leader. For this $1,000 scholarship we are placing a priority on volunteer work, leadership and community involvement. Good grades don’t hurt, but we’re interested in more than that.

We are giving away more College Travel Scholarships. We’ll be awarding one for February, March and April. These scholarships winners will get $500 to visit a potential college. Cappex wants you to find the college that’s right for you, and you can’t do that unless you set foot on campus.

The deadline to apply for the GPA and standout scholarships is April 30. We will announce the winners shortly thereafter.

Anyone with a Cappex profile is eligible to apply. And since Cappex profiles are free there is no reason for you to miss this opportunity.

Full details are available on our college scholarships home page. If you don’t already have a Cappex profile, get one.
