2019 Capstone On-Campus NASPA Undergraduate Student Conference Scholarship Application

Capstone On-Campus Management and NASPA have teamed up to create the Capstone On-Campus NASPA Undergraduate Student Conference Scholarship. This scholarship is intended to support first time attendance at NASPA's Undergraduate Student Conference prior to the Annual Conference in Los Angeles, CA. Any undergraduate student with an interest in higher education and student affairs is eligible to apply, including NUFP Fellows.

Recipients of the scholarship will receive a complimentary registration to the Undergraduate Student Conference and a $250 stipend to use for conference-related expenses.

Complete applications must include:

  • Online demographic information (this form) 
  • Updated Resume
  • Applicant Questions
  • Letter of Recommendation 

Application Deadline: December 17, 2018

Applicants will be notified by the middle of January. For questions about the Capstone On-Campus Undergraduate Student Conference Scholarship, please email Colleen Dougherty at  

Please note: While NUFP Fellows are encouraged to apply for this scholarship, Fellows will not be awarded both the Capstone On-Campus Undergraduate Student Conference Scholarship AND the NUFP Annual Conference Stipend.


If you do not have a customer ID, please create one here: Create a Customer ID. While a NASPA membership is not required to apply for the stipend, the registration rate reimbursed will be the undergraduate member early-bird rate ($140).
