The Bob and Bonnie Phelps Family CAP Awards

The University of Northern Colorado through the Office of Community and Civic Engagement is proud to announce the winners of The Bob & Bonnie Phelps Family CAP Awards 2015.

Championed by UNC friends Bob and Bonnie Phelps Family, CAP Awards recognize students whose lives demonstrate an exceptional and exemplary personal commitment to:

  • Contribute…by volunteering time and personal skills, talents, abilities, experience and passion around issues in service to the community.
  • Achieve…by displaying a bias toward action and performance, overcoming obstacles and setbacks, and accomplishing goals.
  • Pay-it-forward…by impacting the lives of others in meaningful and positive ways through random and planned acts of kindness, caring, and “giving back.”

The Bob & Bonnie Phelps Family CAP Awards will recognize up to three students annually who meet the aforementioned criteria for an amount of up to $5000.  These financial awards will be applied by UNC’s Office of Financial Aid to help students pay for tuition / fees, University housing, or to reduce the amount of students' college loan debt.

To apply for the Bob and Bonnie Phelps Family CAP Awards, please see the UNC Universal Scholarship Application.
