The Phillips 66 Community Advisory Panel (CAP) Scholarship is a non-renewable $1,000 scholarship for high school seniors. The scholarship program is open to full-time students at Alton, Civic Memorial, East Alton-Wood River, Roxana, or Marquette high schools.

The scholarship is open to applicants planning to attend a two-year or four-year program at a community college or university. Applications are judged based on education and career goals, community service, financial need, and academic performance.

“Our Community Advisory Panel, known as CAP, is a group of local stakeholders who meet with refinery leadership on a monthly basis,” says Erker. "The scholarship program is one of the many ideas which came out from these ongoing interactions and has awarded more than $75,000 in financial support to students since the program started in 2008.”

A copy of the CAP scholarship application can be obtained through the school guidance counselors.
