Highland Park, IL (PRWEB) August 16, 2007
As students head back to school, Cappex.com has good news for next year's college freshman class. High school students may now apply for the Cappex College Scholarship, a $5,000 award open to all students with a free profile on Cappex.com.
"This scholarship is created to take a big bite out of a college bill," Mike Moyer, president of Cappex.com, LLC, said. "Most scholarships are under $2,000. We designed this scholarship to make a real impact on the life of a college-bound student."
Also announced today are three more major-specific scholarships from Cappex. There is one college scholarship each for a student with an intended major in English, education or political science.
The awards further strengthen Cappex's commitment to ensuring students find the best college fit. Cappex is awarding 26 scholarships worth $25,000 through January of next year.
To qualify, students need only fill out a profile at http://www.cappex.com/scholarships. Students with a 2.0 GPA or better can qualify and apply through the fall semester.
One profile allows students to apply for multiple scholarships with the click of a mouse.
In addition to being eligible for the scholarships, Cappex students will also hear about colleges seeking students just like them.
The Cappex profile is free and simple. It includes information on academics, accomplishments in areas like sports and music, what students want to study in college, and what kind of school they might like to attend. Cappex students are matched with interested colleges based on their needs and wants.
"Cappex turns the tables on the college search process. We put students in control, and make sure they capitalize on their college opportunities," Moyer said.
