Funding: The scholarship is funded from bequests left to Cross by former members of Cross. The earnings from this investment can only fund a yearly scholarship of about $350 without depleting the principal. Additional donations, including legacy gifts, are gratefully accepted.


 

These scholarships and their endowments are overseen by the Endowment Board. >>

 

 

And, from the Community:

Martin Luther King Scholarships

The Martin Luther King Scholarships are awarded separately.  Applicants must participate in the MKL All-A-Thon to qualify.

Funding: These are funded through pledges by those participating in the annual MKL All-A-Thon each spring. Many members of Cross are avid supporters of the event, and will gratefully accept your financial support.
