Derek and Wendy Pew have made a significant gift to establish the Derek and Wendy Pew Scholarship Fund. The scholarship will be awarded to first-year law students based on merit or need.

Pew was until recently the interim CEO of Wireless Philadelphia, a nonprofit charged with creating a wireless network that will provide citywide Internet access. Pew began his career as an investment banker at Bankers Trust Co. in New York. After graduation from Penn Law, he joined Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, where he helped transact the $33 billion merger of Bell Atlantic and NYNEX. In 1998, he became president of The Furst Group, an international communications provider, and later co-founded Boathouse Communications Partners and Remi Communications. Pew serves on the advisory boards of the Metropolitan AIDS Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance and the Greene Towne School and on the board of the Maestro Circle Committee of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Wendy L. Pew is a municipal court judge in Philadelphia. She was the presiding judge of Community Court which adjudicates lesser offenses like vandalism, disorderly conduct, and possession of a crime instrument and currently sits as a criminal judge. Derek and Wendy reside in Philadelphia with their two daughters, Alexandra and Katherine.
