    Crosby Scholars offers a wide variety of scholarship opportunities to seniors who have been involved in the Crosby Scholars program.  Scholarships may be academic based, need based, school based, community service based, essay based, and for first generation college students.
     
    Several of these scholarship opportunities have deadlines in March.
     
    All applications can be accessed through your Crosby Scholars Student Portal.
     

     
    The Winston-Salem Foundation one-stop scholarship application goes live on December 15. Please encourage local students in your networks to visit wsfoundation.org/students to learn more.
     
    An important change this year: to be considered for most scholarships, applicants must first fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Note: students who are unable to complete the FAFSA (such as non-citizens without a green card or permanent status) are still eligible to apply when our scholarship portal opens.
     
    In the 2020-2021 school year, over 130 WSF scholarship funds supported almost 600 local students with more than $1.2 million in much-needed scholarship support.
