How to Apply for a SOCAPA Scholarship
You do not need to submit the $500 registration deposit when you apply for a scholarship. If your attendance is contingent on receiving a certain amount in scholarship awards, you should not pay the deposit. If, however, you are determined to attend regardless of how many funds are available for you and you want to secure your spot in a program, you should pay the deposit, knowing that you are committing to attending the program and that the $500 non-refundable registration deposit will ensure your spot.
You will need to collect the following items and submit them to our Admissions office. Please carefully follow the directions and be sure to include all compoenents at one time. Also keep in mind that your scholarship application is a presentation of your desire to attend the program. Being organized and thorough shows us that this is important to you.
Incomplete applications are not reviewed.
Please describe what you hope to gain from your time at SOCAPA and what you will contribute to the program.
Please provide any additional information you believe important in our assessment of your family's need. In addition, please provide a realistic estimate of how much you can contribute to the cost of the program. Please remember that SOCAPA cannot help with Room and Board or Travel.
Statements without this estimate will not be considered.
