Scholarship Winners Announced!

The wait is over! Cappex college scholarship winners are in, and we are excited to finally announce which students earned some of our biggest awards. We had lots of great applicants and the decisions were tough. Congratulations to everyone.

  • Ashley F. of Tampa, Fla., wins the Communications Scholarship.
  • Aparna R. of Plymouth, Minn., wins the Biology Scholarship.
  • Jeffrey L. of Cerritos, Calif., wins the Business Scholarship.
  • Kate D. of Columbus, Miss., and Garrett V. of Paris, Texas are winners of the Cappex College Tour Travel Scholarships.
  • Corey M. of Smyrna, Ga., wins the GPA Isn’t Everything Scholarship.

We backed up our promise with the GPA Isn’t Everything Scholarship. Corey doesn’t have a 4.0, though he’s got a lot going for him. He’s class president, co-captain of the cross country team and a sergeant in JROTC. He does drama and a host of volunteer activities.

If you didn’t win, there are still several chances to take home a Cappex college scholarship. Jan. 31 is the deadline to apply for the Cappex College Scholarship, Cappex Promoter Scholarship, Hardship and our final two (for now) College Tour Travel Scholarships. That date is also the deadline for the Cappex “I Don’t Want to Pay For College” Scholarship and our English, education and political science scholarships.

Good luck to everyone applying, and congratulations again to all our winners.

Don’t forget: Tell us where you’re applying! We want to know which Cappex colleges you are sending your applications. Leave a comment below or email us at

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, for selecting me for the Cappex Travel Tour Scholarship. I have been trying to find a way to go to Nashville to visit Vanderbilt University and when the letter came today, I was so excited. I have been accept to the University of Mary Hardin Baylor & Texas A&M. I am waiting to hear from the University of Texas, Vanderbilt University and Baylor University. I also am waiting to hear from some of the schools that contacted me thru my Cappex profile. I am so very thankful for this scholarship and for this site. It has really helped me get general information on alot of schools and specific communication with ones that I am interested in. This is a great site and thanks again.
