CAPA’s commitment to diversity extends to personal, experiential, and academic engagements throughout all of our communities. We strive to create inclusive environments for our students that allow them to experience and learn from people with diverse backgrounds, worldviews, and cultural traditions. We view our commitment to diversity as a form of social justice by promoting international education as an opportunity that is available and achievable for everyone.
The HBCU Grant
As part of this commitment to diversity, we developed the HBCU grant program. This initiative provides students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) with an automatic grant to participate in a variety of CAPA programs. Students attending HBCU institutions automatically receive $1,000 toward a fall or spring semester programs with CAPA or $500 toward CAPA’s summer programs. Students receiving the HBCU grant are still eligible to apply for CAPA’s other scholarships such as the Diversity Advocates Grant or our Blogger/Vlogger Grants.
