This Rowan County Crosby Scholars community event is designed to support our mission of preparing each student in Rowan County for successful college admission.


In 2014, '15, and '16, the BBQ, BANDS, & BOOTS fundraiser has helped raise over $150,000 of Last Dollar Grant Scholarships to Rowan Crosby Scholar graduates. A Last Dollar Grant is need-based financial aid awarded to graduating Crosby Scholars who demonstrate remaining financial need once their college of choice has awarded financial aid. Crosby Scholars who complete the program their senior year with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher are eligible to apply for a Last Dollar Grant of up to $1,000 for college, each year for up to 4 years. Thank you to all who supported BBQ, BANDS, & BOOTS to benefit Rowan Crosby Scholars. You have helped make the dream of going to college a reality for those students with unmet financial need.
