A scholar must also apply for financial aid by filing the FAFSA in order to be considered for a LDG and demonstrate not only financial need but also remaining need after the school of choice has awarded aid. To determine eligibility, the Crosby Scholars staff completes a need analysis form on each scholar individually.

Three supporting documents must be uploaded to the senior portal under My Documents to complete the application:

  1. A copy of the scholar’s letter of admission from the institution he/she will attend
  2. A copy of the financial aid award letter from the institution he/she will attend
  3. A copy of pages 1 & 2 of the FAFSA SAR (Student Aid Report)

Eligibility: Scholars who complete the program Senior year with a cumulative GPA of 2.0+ are eligible to apply for a LDG for up to 4 years. The deadline to submit the online application in the portal is June 30. All supporting documents must be uploaded by July 15.

Senior- please take a moment to let us know what college you will be attending.
