CAP COM Cares Foundation to Award $80,000 In Scholarships



CAP COM Federal Credit Union has opened its 2019 Scholarship & Awards application and nomination period. Each year CAP COM’s charitable giving arm, the CAP COM Cares Foundation, donates nearly $80,000 in scholarships and awards. CAP COM will also recognize educators in addition to over 30 student honorees.

CAP COM takes pride in awarding a variety of scholarships based on eligibility and interests. The most popular, the $2,500 Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to 25 high school seniors pursuing an undergraduate degree. The $2,000 Art Goedeke Memorial Scholarship, named after a long-time CAP COM FCU Board Member will be awarded to a student studying computer science or information technology, which was a passion of Goedeke’s. The CAP COM Cares Foundation will also acknowledge three educators and six students with the Making a Difference Award to those who go above and beyond to help others in the community and classroom.

“With the rising cost of college tuition and budget cuts that schools face, it’s our privilege to lift our community by offering financial assistance in the form of scholarships and awards for those who display drive and passion toward their educational endeavors. We are thrilled to not only honor our students, but also educators who make such a tremendous impact in the lives of others!” said Paula A.Stopera, President/CEO, CAP COM FCU and Chair of CAP COM Cares Foundation’s Board of Directors. 

Application and nomination forms are available at www.capcomfcu.org/scholarships. The deadline for submitting applications is May 1, and winners will be recognized and awarded at CAP COM’s Annual Scholarship & Award breakfast in June.
