ASPEN Application

In January, 2014, the Aspen Institute recently honored Cape Fear Community College as one of the Top 150 Community Colleges out of 1,005 potential candidates in the nation. This distinction qualified CFCC to apply for Round 2 of the 2015 Aspen Prize application process, taking us one step closer to a grand prize worth up to $1,000,000 and a very prestigious award that, if won, would showcase CFCC as a model community college all across the nation.

CFCC compiled all the information and data to submit its application on March 12, 2014 and the Aspen Institute  acknowledged receipt of our application. You may like to read more information on their website at
