The Crew Scholars Program offers a community in which students build lifelong friendships, attend exciting events, and get involved in every aspect of campus life, all while cultivating academic and leadership skills and nurturing their passion for making a difference. Plus, the Crew Scholars Program makes a Drake education more financially feasible: Crew Scholars enrolled full-time in on-campus courses for the fall and/or spring semesters, receive Drake scholarships and grants totaling at least 50 percent of tuition.
