That same page also shows 31 March as the notification date for scholarships.

QuoteCadet Lift and TOP Cadets who applied by 15 Jan 2019 will receive notification of financial assistance before the NCSA deposit deadline. Recipients of scholarships or pre-enrollment into Cadet Wings will be announced by end of March.

It appears that some were announced 3/31, others will be announced 4/30.

CAP isn't very good with keeping their time commitments:

I was told I would get a welcome letter for my NCSA no later than the 15 of March. I got it a week later.
I was told that I would hear from the TOP program before the deposit deadline for NCSA's (March 31) and heard back April 2nd (forcing me to make a deposit afraid I would loose my slot).
The TOP program was supposed to help me pay by April 15 form my NCSA.  On April 22n'd they sent an email saying they needed more time - still haven't gotten an update.

I wouldn't be surprised if they announce the scholarship winners a week or two late. I think they ended up doing that last year as well.

It appears to be more than a week or two late already. Supposed to be announced by March 31st/April 1st. It's now May 1st. Last year they were announced April 10th.

I hope so!  :)

Maybe try contacting the director of scholarships (Wendy Hamilton) directly?

She's good about getting back to you.  It sounds like they've got their hands full with the flight scholarships.

Anyone heard anything?  This is getting kinda silly, at least post an update or a quick email.
