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 Charles R. Drew Memorial Scholarship Commission (CRDMSC) was formed to give international recognition to future leaders of society and to foster scholastic achievement in the Fraternity.
Funding for all scholarship and grants is provided each year through a generous donation by the Omega Life Membership Foundation, Inc. (http://www.olmf.org/)
