By Ryan Smith | 7 May 2017 07:37:40A scholarship program called the Cappex Scholarship Program is being criticized for not providing enough support to underrepresented groups, according to the Association of College and University Professors.
The association, which has been calling for a ban on the scholarship program since the Trump administration launched its own scholarship program last year, said in a statement that it believes the program has not been properly vetted and vetted well.
The CappEx scholarship program allows students to apply to a private school and then receive a $10,000 scholarship, typically from private investors or foundations, which can be used to pay for tuition or other educational expenses.
Under the program, the schools are responsible for funding the students and they must apply to participate.
However, it is not required that schools provide the scholarships or that students who receive them meet certain criteria.
For example, a student who received the scholarship and then later transferred to a non-traditional school, for example, might not be able to take advantage of the $10k.
In a letter to the administration of the scholarship, the association wrote that while the scholarship is intended for students from underrepresented communities, it has been shown to be a barrier to their ability to succeed academically and culturally in the American public school system.
“The lack of an adequate vetting process is causing harm to students, parents, and communities,” the letter said.
“There is evidence that the program is a major source of barriers to students’ achievement in the private sector, particularly in rural and urban areas.”
The association said that the scholarship has a low retention rate and it is unclear whether it is fair to consider the program a public benefit when it is receiving funding from private donors.
“This is especially true when it comes from wealthy donors who do not want to invest in disadvantaged students,” the association said.
The program, which is currently in its third year, is funded through federal grants.
The foundation behind the scholarship programs, the National Endowment for the Humanities, has a history of using its influence to pressure universities to make grants to colleges that would benefit from the scholarships.
In 2015, for instance, it helped create the scholarship for the National Association of Black Colleges and Universities, which received $15.6 million to help support black students in the academic disciplines.
In 2017, the foundation also created the CapsEx scholarship, which awards $10 million for disadvantaged students and $2.5 million for high school students, and was used to support the creation of the Undergraduate Scholars Program.
The foundation also established the Undergrads Scholarship Program, which also helps students in high school and college to earn a degree, and is designed to help disadvantaged students find jobs.
The Trump administration has said the scholarships were intended to help underrepresented students.
The White House website says the scholarships will allow students who “do not qualify for any of the current public aid programs to access an affordable, well-rounded education.”
The Trump Administration has said that it is committed to supporting public colleges and universities, including through the CaPPEX program, and that the scholarships are “critical for our economy and job creation.”
