All Opportunities

Welcome to Radford University’s Foundation Scholarship Application Portal!

Radford University’s Foundation Scholarship portal gives you the opportunity to be considered for multiple scholarships funded by generous donors to the University, all by completing a single application. Approximately $3 million in scholarships will be awarded from nearly 500 scholarships for the 2024-25 academic year.

Foundation scholarships can help you pay for tuition, fees, room, board, books, and other education-related expenses.

The 2024-2025 application has been re-opned. The application opened on November 1, 2023 and the priority deadline to apply was February 5, 2024. We have extended the deadline for some scholarships through April 1st . If you are using a computer, apply by clicking on the sign-in button at the top right of the page. If you are using a smart phone, you will see the sign-in button on the lower right.

Newly Admitted Students
You are eligible to apply for Foundation scholarships, even if you have not yet confirmed your enrollment. Here are next steps:

  • First, activate your OneCampus account if you have not yet done so. You will need your username and claim code to activate your OneCampus-you can locate both in your Highlander Portal.
  • Then, come back to this page and log in (click on the sign-in button) and use your OneCampus credentials. Please note, access to the application may take up to 24 hours after you create your account.

Current Students
Simply use your OneCampus log in credentials when you click on the sign-in button. If you have applied previously, a portion of your application will populate, but you will want to update your application just as you would your resume to ensure you share important updates with the scholarship committees.

All StudentsMany of Radford’s foundation scholarships are need-based and require students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For maximum scholarship consideration, complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. Some foundation scholarships require the FAFSA, but financial need is only a priority, not a requirement.

Uploading Documents
If you are asked to upload a resume, essay, or any other supporting documentation, please know that the system will not allow for punctuation (commas, apostrophes and periods) to be used in the file name e.g.( Using punctuation will cause an error in trying to upload any of these supporting documents.

Letters of Recommendation
Any letters of recommendation come directly to the scholarship portal and will not be sent to you directly.

Many of Radford’s Foundation scholarships require re-application each year to have them renewed. If you are currently receiving a foundation scholarship, be sure to re-apply if you are returning for the following academic year. You must also continue to meet minimum requirements for the scholarship you have received.
