UCREW’s signature event is a one-half day program designed to introduce college students (men and women) to the variety of opportunities available to them in commercial real estate.

CREW Orlando Scholarship Endowment Fund for Valencia Community College

To expand its commitment to the importance of education and to assist deserving students in completing a college education, the organization’s local chapter established the CREW Orlando Scholarship Endowment Fund at Valencia College. CREW Orlando’s Annual Golf Tournament, open to the public and strongly supported by the commercial real estate industry, is held in part to finance this scholarship fund and is intended to provide students the opportunity to further their education when they otherwise might not have the chance. The CREW Orlando Scholarship Fund at Valencia College targets and assists students demonstrating need and a strong desire to begin, continue, or finish their higher education. The Financial Aid Office of Valencia College conducts screening for the recipient(s) of the CREW Scholarship. Selection of scholars or recipients of these scholarships is conducted by the CREW Past President’s Council/ Scholarship Selection Committee . Inquiries about this scholarship can be made to either Valencia College Financial Aid Office or to CREW Orlando.
