Rowan Crosby Scholars fundraiser will support Last Dollar Grants
This year, Crosby Scholars will be working with its first senior class, helping each student find his or her best possible college match and fit, and assisting throughout the entire college application process.
Over the course of the year, these students will meet individually with their senior advisers to help them stay on track with accessing college, including guidance with essays, scholarships and the financial aid process.
Along with aiding seniors with their post-secondary plans, the Crosby Scholars program also offers seniors who complete the program with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher the opportunity to apply for a Last Dollar Grant.
The Last Dollar Grant program offers need-based scholarship assistance up to $1,000 a year, for up to four years. Grants will be awarded to students who have unmet financial need after receiving their college financial aid package.
The Crosby Scholars program relies on community support to raise funds for its Last Dollar Grant program. The second annual BBQ, Bands & Boots event will be held on Sept. 25, from 6-11 p.m. in the F&M Trolley Barn.
Prices are $45 per person or $80 per couple. The price includes slow-smoked pork and chicken, sides and dessert from Jim ‘N Nicks Bar-B-Q, Bourbon on the Bread Truck, Cheerwine, beer and wine and music by Boulder, Colo., band The Railsplitters with additional musical performances by Jonah Horton & The Thrailkills and the Bemus Kids.
