CAPA’s Diversity Advocates Scholarship Program (DAP) is an extension of this philosophy, and supports undergraduate students focused on social justice, access, inclusion, or diversity who wish to continue this focus abroad. Advocates receive a grant in the amount of $1,000 on a semester length program with CAPA to pursue diversity projects or research during their learning abroad experience.
DAP Scholars will collaborate with others and build upon their professional and personal development. They will also have the opportunity to engage in discussion groups and will be provided with tools to help them continue their advocacy efforts post-program. Lastly, DAP scholars will implement a project informed by their understanding of diversity in a local context, which will serve as their “capstone project” while abroad.
To be eligible, you must be a committed and engaged individual with a track record of successful advocacy for diversity within your communities. You will effectively demonstrate an understanding of - and obligation to - influencing your own community from your own experience abroad.
Advocates are awarded a grant in the amount of $1,000 for semester programs only.
