The corporation and foundation scholarships at Capitol College reward continuing, full-time students with funds donated by generous businesses, foundations and individual donors. The donors have established their own criteria and requirements, such as academic merit or financial need. Students continuing to meet the awarding criteria will be considered for subsequent scholarship awards. However, corporate and foundation scholarships are not automatically renewed.
Interested students must submit a completed scholarship application with a typed essay on an assigned topic, no later than March 1 before the academic year they want to be considered for a corporate and foundation scholarship. Applications can be obtained in the Office of Financial Aid.
Anonymous Foundation Scholarship
This anonymous foundation has endowed two scholarships to provide Capitol College students the opportunity to pursue their education. Each year since the 1998-1999 academic year, two students from the Washington D.C. metropolitan area have received support from an anonymous foundation that cares very much about the students at Capitol College. This endowed scholarship is part of the Millennium Society Scholarship Fund. The first scholarship was awarded in 1999.

The Carozza Foundation established this endowed scholarship fund to benefit residents of Prince George's County and the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. Initiated in spring 2001, it provides one scholarship each year to an academically outstanding student.
Baltimore Washington Corridor Chamber of Commerce Foundation Scholarship
Since 1994, the foundation has funded a scholarship for a minority student who participated in Capitol College's NASA PREP pre-college summer program.
Department of Defense Scholarships
Capitol College offers undergraduates majoring in information assurance the opportunity to apply to the Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Awards include tuition plus a $12,000 stipend. Part-time students, certificate candidates and employees of DoD and its agencies are not eligible. These “pay-for-service” scholarships require recipients to work for DoD upon graduation one year for each academic year in which they receive the scholarship. These DoD assignments are not necessarily in the Baltimore-Washington area.
