Scholarships are offered to graduating high school seniors for up to four years of an undergraduate program and current college students who are past recipients of a Cape Cod Association award. Applicants may attend two- and four-year colleges and universities, technical schools, and community colleges anywhere in the United States. The organization does not fund graduate education.
