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.
Crew Scholars enrolled full-time in on-campus courses are guaranteed a 50% tuition deduction.**
(**Calculation of the 50% will include non-Crew Drake scholarships and grants. With the exception of the need-based Drake Grant, they are not an additional 50% on top of those awards. In addition, NCAA and conference guidelines may require adjustments to any scholarship or grant if athletic scholarships are offered.)
The Crew Scholars Program at Drake is open to incoming domestic students of any major. Three cohorts of 20 students will be selected for the program. You must be admitted to Drake before you can apply for Crew.
Once you are part of the Crew, all scholars pledge to graduate from Drake and to provide positive encouragement and support to fellow Crew members. You'll also commit to participating in each component of the program.
