F. A. Q.

Here are some common questions about the Tommy C. Capper Scholarship

Who is eligible for a scholarship from the Tommy C. Capper Foundation?


Applicants must have attended Central DeWitt High School (formerly Central Clinton Community High School); regardless of graduation year.

If I have other options easily available to pay for school, should I still submit an application?

No.  This scholarship is intended for those whose lives it will make the greatest difference, and who would otherwise find it very difficult or impossible to continue their education.
