Dear Cap members,

The Cap and Gown Club works hard to make the club as accessible and welcoming as possible to everyone walking through the doors of 61 Prospect. With that in mind, we are pleased  to inform you that each semester, the Cap board will be considering applications for financial assistance for Cap dues.

Given budgetary constraints, we are only able to offer a limited amount of financial assistance. The amount will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Applications are open to junior and senior members of Cap only. Those to whom we can offer financial assistance who have already paid their semester’s dues will be reimbursed commensurate to the assistance they receive. Each application cycle is fresh; members who received financial assistance last semester must re-apply if they wish to be considered for financial assistance this semester.

The application details are below:

Application period opens:                                 August 30, 2019

Application period closes:                                 September 25, 2019

Decisions emailed to applicants:                       October 5, 2019

We anticipate that this timeline will give you plenty of time to return from your summer conquests and assemble your application. We cannot accept any applications past their due date.

How to Apply?

Fill out this APPLICATION FORM and upload all documents within the form itself.

We encourage everyone who finds the cost of Cap and Gown to be beyond their reach to apply. If you have any questions, please email us at
