All Opportunities

The 2018-2019 Foundation Scholarship application cycle runs Dec. 1 through Feb. 5.

Need money for your Radford Education? Apply for Radford University’s Foundation Scholarships through AcademicWorks and you could join the many Highlanders
who have already received great scholarship awards! With over 1.6 million dollars to award, there will be nearly 600 separate awards made for the 2018-2019 scholarship cycle.

Radford University students, and incoming students who have been accepted and who have paid their deposits are able to log-on to AcademicWorks to complete and submit a short application for consideration during this time frame. To log-on, students will click on the black sign in button, and use their MyRU user name and password.

Scholarship eligibility varies for each scholarship. Major, merit, financial need and leadership qualities may be considered. Completing the FAFSA, writing essays or including references may be required for some scholarships. Only the scholarship opportunities that require students to provide additional information beyond the general application will show up in students’ AcademicWorks portals as an icon, which can be opened for additional instructions.

AcademicWorks will match students’ applications to scholarships based on the criteria set for each scholarship. Once matched, students’ applications will be considered as a part of a pool of applicants by various scholarship committees throughout the university. Award notifications will be sent in May via email from foundscholar@radford.edu.

Questions may be directed to Cherie Durbin in the Financial Aid Office: cdurbin2@radford.edu or by phone at: 540-831-7171.
