Harry B. Crewson Foundation

Funding Future Scholars

Our Mission

The Crewson Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, honors the memory of OUCU Founder Harry B. Crewson

The Foundation funds educational opportunities for OUCU members and their children. Dr. Crewson believed strongly in the power of education to benefit individuals and their communities. A scholarship allowed him to pursue his own college education and laid the groundwork for his many achievements. 

Currently, we offer three $3,000 Harry B. Crewson Scholarships and three $2,000 OUCU Higher Education Scholarships.
