Next Step Scholarship
The Crumley Roberts Next Step Scholarship is a twenty-first century award. Over the last three decades we noticed that continuing education does not always happen immediately after high school. Founded on a principal of care, Crumley Roberts decided to extend an award which helped recognize those dedicated North Carolinians who pursue their education in a non-traditional manner. We challenge our employees to care for people in our community, to protect them, and to fight for them in their time of need. The Next Step Scholarship extends our commitment to students as they continue to reach for greatness. Education is not always a linear path, and the Next Step Scholarship is a challenge to keep pushing forward.
The Next Step Scholarship is available to all North Carolina Community College students who will be attending an accredited four-year college or university in Fall 2017. Applications for the 2017 Next Step Scholarship are now closed.
