Newly accepted and existing Buffalo State students may log in to CAPS to view and apply for scholarships. Students need to complete a general scholarship annually and which will auto-match them to applicable scholarships. Some scholarships may require additional tasks.
All scholarship recipients must accept the offered scholarship in CAPS. Recipients should log in to CAPS, then click on "Applications", and then accept the scholarship. Familiarize yourself with with the criteria you must meet at the time of awarded, if the scholarship it renewable etc.
Scholarships are funded through the generosity of donors to the College. Scholarship recipients are expected to submit a thank you letter to the donor. Some items to include in your thank you letter are, your reaction to receiving the scholarship, what the scholarship means to you, your major, college and community activities, any obstacles you overcame in order to attend college, and your plans for after graduation.
