Collect your check – Last Dollar Grants will be awarded after July 1st

Did you submit your Last Dollar Grant application online via the college/funding page of the Crosby Scholars Student Portal? If not, stop procrastinating! Submit it today – it’s not too late! Learn the details of this funding opportunity – including how to apply through your Crosby Scholars Student Portal.

The Crosby Scholars Last Dollar Grant (LDG) is need-based financial aid. A scholar must apply for financial aid by submitting a FAFSA in order to be considered for a Last Dollar Grant. (If you are not eligible to complete a FAFSA, please contact our office directly to speak with Ashly Wilson.) A scholar must demonstrate not only financial need but also remaining need after the school of choice has awarded aid. To determine eligibility, the Crosby Scholars staff completes a need analysis form on each scholar individually.

Scholars are notified of our decision by letter posted in their Crosby Scholars Student Portal beginning after July 1. Awards are made payable to the institution and are sent directly to the institution to be credited to the students account. The first half of the award is sent after August 1 and is to be used for the fall semester. The second half of the award is sent upon receipt of the scholar’s fall semester grades and is to be used for the second semester. Scholars are responsible for uploading grades at the end of each semester, but need not provide an official college transcript. Uploading grades from your college account is acceptable provided it includes a cumulative GPA.
