Capella Scholarships for New Students

Scholarships are a form of educational funding and are considered gifts; therefore, they do not need to be paid back. Scholarship eligibility may be based on degree program, field of study, or a combination of factors.

Scholarships can be used to pay for education expenses including such school charges as tuition, room and board, fees, books, supplies, equipment, dependent child care expenses, transportation, and rental or purchase of a personal computer.

Capella offers scholarships to new students who enroll by the deadline, complete a specified number of courses, and maintain good academic standing. Late applications will not be accepted. New students may apply for only one of the scholarships listed below.
