Keep Costs Down with Scholarships

Whether offered by Capella or an outside organization, scholarships can help you lower the cost of your education.

Applying for a scholarship requires advanced planning. Typically, scholarship applications are accepted many months before funds are distributed. Scholarships can be highly competitive and have an extensive application and review process. In addition to completing the application, you may be required to submit additional materials, such as a transcript, a resume, and letters of recommendation.

Scholarships Offered by Capella University

Capella offers several scholarships to currently enrolled students in a variety of programs. Most are awarded to several students once per year. Applications are only accepted during the specified time period. Visit Campus for more information.
