Celebrating CCAPS Scholarship Recipients

We Are Driven U of M flag

Join Us in Recognizing CCAPS Scholarship Recipients and Our Generous Donors

Without the generous contributions from donors and supporters, the College of Continuing and Professional Studies could not offer its array of scholarships to deserving students. This financial support is not taken for granted, and it makes a big difference in the lives of students at our college. Without a doubt, scholarships are the result of a community effort. Please take a moment to listen to the voices of the CCAPS community below. Congratulations to this year’s CCAPS scholarship recipients, and many heartfelt thanks to the donors and supporters.

Bob Stine, Dean of the College of Continuing and Professional Studies, offers remarks in recognition of the importance that scholarships have for CCAPS students.
