 Summer Challenge

Get rewarded for working towards your goals!

Summertime is the best time to get ahead in your college search. Once you create a Cappex account and add your CBO or charter school to your profile, you can start searching for your right fit college.

After you've added five schools to your list, enter the Summer Challenge for a chance to win money for college. Two $500 scholarships will be awarded to students who have started their college search on Cappex.com & entered the contest.

Be sure to apply for the scholarship between June 1, 2022 and September 1, 2022. The 2022 Summer Challenge is now closed. Please check back in 2023.
