Find the Right Funding for Your Goals
Scholarships offered by Capella and other outside sources are an ideal way to fund your education — they do not have to be paid back and can be used for tuition, fees, and other education expenses. Although scholarships can be need-based, merit-based, or a combination of the two, they require advanced planning due to their limited availability and extensive application and review process.
