"Crosby Scholars gave me a chance to take on leadership positions to better myself and to change and re-create my life." -Mushaya

My girls were involved in this program from the start and it benefited them in so many ways.  My husband and I are not college graduates and to have two children attending such good schools gives us much pride.  -Proud Parent

"The Crosby Scholar volunteers were conscientious, hard working, took direction well without complaint, built working teams with others they did not know well, etc! We have many potential leaders and teambuilders in our midst.  What a pleasure to have them help us!" -Ann, Moore Magnet School

“The class really helped me a lot. I went in today confident and ready to take the test. The class helped me prepare and know what to expect on the ACT.” Quote about the ACT Bootcamp on Feb 28 -Jo'ell

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 9,700 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.
