Crosby Scholars enrolling students

SALISBURY — Rowan County Crosby Scholars is enrolling Rowan-Salisbury students in grades six through 10.

Crosby Scholars is a free college access program available to public middle and high school students in Rowan County. The program’s goal is to work with students academically, personally and financially to assist with their education plans after high school.

Students who enroll in middle school benefit from the program’s focus on character development and have the chance to take part in local college tours and academy workshops and are exposed to a variety of careers.

In high school, Crosby Scholars provides opportunities for students to learn how to become competitive college applicants, while honing in on the best possible education opportunities after high school graduation.

Seniors in the program are provided a trained, one-on-one adviser who assists with college plans and the college application process.

Since its inception in 2013, Crosby Scholars has enrolled more than 4,300 students who have performed more than 35,000 hours of community service.

So far, 350 seniors have graduated across the county as Crosby Scholars. They are attending colleges as far away as New York University and as close as Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.

Through the generosity of community partners, Crosby Scholars has awarded $25,000 in scholarships and more than $130,000 in grants to qualifying students with unmet financial need.

Enrollment is open through Oct. 1. Visit crosbyscholarsrowan.org or call 704-762-3512 for more information.
