Championed by UNC friends Bob and Bonnie Phelps Family, the 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 3 students annually who meet the aforementioned criteria with a $5,000 scholarship and award plaque presented at the annual Community Engaged Scholars Symposium.
