Cappex launched our $1 Butterfly Effect Scholarship in October. It was (and is still open to apply for!) one of the most unique programs we’ve ever done.
Students basically apply for one dollar. Yep. One dollar. But the students understand that it’s not about the monetary value of the scholarship, it’s about the symbolic value-the butterfly effect of it all. The one dollar serves as jumping off point for the rest of their college search and scholarship journey. Applying for the dollar is a small action that could lead to a big future. And once they applied for their dollar, they’re eligible for the $2,500. See? One small little thing can turn into something much bigger.
But there’s also the twist that students could choose to donate their dollar instead of receive it.
We wanted to acknowledge the big hearts of those students and present the first 100 folks who donated their dollar with this:
Thanks to all who have participated in the butterfly effect!
And remember, you can still apply! Deadline’s December 31st.
That’s right, ‘bestest’ is not a word. But it certainly applies to the scholarship that Cappex has just unleashed on the public:
You’re right again, that’s not a typo. We are giving away $1 scholarships to A LOT of people.
Want more details?
Watch this video to get a clear idea of why we’re giving away dollar bills and how it can turn into a $2,500 scholarship:

Still need a bit more of a breakdown?
We want to give you $1 as a kinda symbolic gesture to mark the start of your college and scholarship search. It’s like the first flutter on the way to your big college dreams.
So what we’re trying to say is that just like how the small action of a butterfly flapping its wings can cause a chain of events that leads to a large-scale hurricane halfway around the world, one dollar can be the thing that sets in motion the events that lead to your awesome dreams.
Plus, apply for your dollar, and you’re also eligible for the $2,500 scholarship!
If you’re already a member on Cappex, you should apply by logging into Cappex.com and going to the scholarships tab.
