scholarships/financial assistance

 

CAPAS is committed to making our training program available to all dedicated, hardworking students. In an effort to make our programming accessible to exemplary students, CAPAS is implementing a Scholarship Program. Scholarship recipients are expected to be role models for their peers, demonstrating a positive attitude, exemplary attendance, and a driven work ethic. Additionally, scholarship recipients are expected to meet certain performance and attendance requirements.   There is a finite amount of financial assistance available and ALL scholarship requests will begin with the online application process and accountant's review.
