CAPA Endowed Scholarship in Human Resources Established

economicsCAPE GIRARDEAU, Missouri, March 23, 2015 – The CAPA Endowed Scholarship in Human Resources has been established through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation.

The Cape Area Personnel Association (CAPA) of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, made a $5,000 gift to establish the scholarship. Its gift will be matched with an additional $5,000 through a University matching gift program.

The matching gift program is part of the Honoring Tradition – Inspiring Success Comprehensive Campaign through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation. This program allowed donors to make a minimum commitment of $5,000 to a maximum commitment of $10,000 through donation or pledge by March 1, 2014, that qualified for a $1-for-$1 match.

The CAPA Endowed Scholarship in Human Resources will be awarded to a student enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University who is a current CAPA member or HR Redhawk member of the local student SHRM chapter who is pursuing a major or minor in human resources. Recipients must have a 3.0 grade point average and financial need. Second preference is for a current CAPA member or HR Redhawk member of the local student SHRM chapter who is pursuing a major or minor in human resources with a minimum 2.0 grade point average. Third preference is for a student enrolled at Southeast who is pursuing a major or minor in human resources. The Department of Management and Marketing will select the recipient.

The Cape Area Personnel Association (CAPA) is a professional organization comprised of individuals from businesses in the Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Scott City, Perryville and surrounding communities whose primary responsibilities are human resources or training functions within their organizations. Southeast students are eligible for an associate membership.
