The Last Dollar Challenge Campaign purpose is to raise $1 million to support the Rowan County Crosby Scholars Community Partnership. A Last Dollar Grant is funding that closes the gap between college cost and the financial aid package. Crosby Scholars awards need-based grants up to $1,000 per year to qualified Crosby Scholars. Students must graduate from high school with a cumulative weighted GPA of 2.0 or higher, successfully complete all program requirements, and demonstrate unmet financial need after federal financial aid has been determined. Students may reapply for up to four years of undergraduate study.


In 2016, the Program was able to award
Last Dollar Grants to 56 students.
