Charles Richard Drew Memorial Scholarship Commission

The Founders of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. recognized the importance of the intellect in all matters pertaining to the advancement of humankind. As such, they made scholarship the foremost of the Fraternity’s four Cardinal Principles: Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift. Scholarship is no side issue – it is an integral and deep-rooted component of this organization. Every member, chapter, and district of the Fraternity is dedicated to scholarship. Thus, the Dr. Charles R. Drew Memorial Scholarship Commission was formed to give international recognition to future leaders of society and to foster scholastic achievement in the Fraternity through the following goals:

  1. To increase awareness and the importance of the scholarship, especially among the undergraduate members
  2. To encourage high academic attainment at the International, District, and Chapter levels
  3. To encourage Chapters and Districts to reward high academic attainment by providing scholarship aid to students on all levels, and to work toward stimulation of scholarly aims among youth in secondary schools
  4. To encourage meaningful research and creative productivity among all people without regard to race, creed, sex, or Greek-letter affiliationIn pursuit of these goals, the Charles R. Drew Memorial Scholarship Commission distributes materials, evaluates individual performances, and reviews projects for which monetary grants and awards are given.
