Cape Cod Foundation Awards More Than $500,000 in Scholarships

Record breaking year...

The Cape Cod Foundation recently awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to 140 local students from Cape Cod and the Islands who are beginning or continuing their higher education or pursuing certificate programs.

“This year we reached an important milestone by exceeding the half million-dollar mark in awards,” said Kristin O’Malley, President and CEO of The Cape Cod Foundation. “Clearly, our community values education and wants to provide students with resources and opportunities that will enrich their lives now and in the future.”

More than 200 people attended the annual reception in June at the Sea View in Dennis Port, where many scholarship donors and review committee members met the recipients in person for the first time. 

Some of this year’s students will be pursuing degrees nearby at Cape Cod Community College and the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Others will be venturing farther from home to study at Harvard, Dartmouth, Columbia, Northeastern, Boston College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and other fine colleges and universities throughout the United States. They will prepare for careers in business, law, engineering, medicine, politics, social work, environmental sciences, education, technology, and the arts.

The Cape Cod Foundation currently has more than 80 active scholarship funds totaling almost $10 million in principal that award scholarships annually to students in our region. Its partner, the Cape Cod Association, also awarded $440,000 to 297 students in June, bringing the total scholarships awarded from the two organizations to more than $940,000.
