About us

The Crew Scholarship Fund (TCSF), a private, independent organization founded in 2017,  is dedicated to advancing the education of promising African American students.  The founding members of TSCF have been friends for over 20 years and are collectively known as “The Crew”, for which the organization is named.  “The Crew” was inspired to create this scholarship to directly impact the African American community.  TCSF sees higher education as a catalyst, an agent of change for individuals, families, and communities. We envision a community that recognizes the importance of educational attainment and assures positive educational outcomes are accessible to all regardless of economic circumstance.
