Why Be A Crosby Scholar Video

What is Crosby Scholars?

At the Crosby Scholars Community Partnership, we help students in public middle and high schools in Forsyth County prepare academically, personally, and financially for college admission and other post-secondary opportunities best suited to a student's needs, aptitudes and dreams. We are a partnership of the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, the United Way of Forsyth County, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, and The Winston-Salem Foundation. On July 1, 2012, Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina, Inc. and the Crosby Scholars Program formed an alliance establishing Crosby Scholars as an independent affiliate of Goodwill.  With a 23-year history of providing academic training, financial aid and college application workshops, advisory services, college tours and Last Dollar Grant scholarships, Crosby Scholars now serves 8,900 students per year.

Who can join? When?

Crosby Scholars accepts applications from students enrolled in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County public schools in 6th through 10th grade. The application is online and will be available on our website from August 15 - October 1, 2015 for the 2015-16 school year.
