The Crosby Scholars Program, a unique nonprofit college access organization, assists public middle and high school students in Forsyth County in preparing themselves for successful college enrollment. Participation is open to all students in grades 6-12 in Forsyth County public schools, free of charge. 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 more than 9,700 students.

As higher education becomes increasingly competitive and expensive, students and parents in Forsyth County need the guidance and expertise of the Crosby Scholars Program to ensure that every qualified student has the opportunity to attend college and learn to overcome barriers to college enrollment. Access to college enrollment is an important factor not only in the lives of individual youth but in the life of our community as well. Providing workshops and mentors to encourage well-balanced and goal-oriented young people helps build community capacity by addressing such issues as workforce development, drug abuse prevention, and volunteer involvement.
