All Opportunities

Welcome to Radford University’s Foundation Scholarship Portal!

Below you will find a listing of our foundation scholarships (scholarships created by donors to our University). If available, brief information about these scholarships and their qualifications will be included. Please note that this list is for informational purposes only. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.

The 2022-2023 application is now open! The application is open between November 1, 2021 and February 5, 2022.

Prospective Students–Admitted students may be considered for many of our foundation scholarships. Access to this scholarship portal may take 1-2 days after the initial log in to the University portal. Interested students should complete the general application and may also apply for appropriate apply-to scholarship opportunities (scholarships that require an extra step beyond the general application) that show up as available once the general application has been submitted. Although the foundation scholarship application closes Feb. 5th 2022, incoming students who have missed this deadline may still be considered for a group of foundation scholarships managed by Enrollment Management regardless of application submission.


All Students – Many of Radford’s scholarships are need-based and require students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please remember to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1, 2021. For maximum scholarship consideration, please make every effort to submit your FAFSA well before the February 5th, 2022 scholarship deadline, so that your financial aid eligibility may be included as a part of your application.

Application Timeline and Process

  • The 2022-2023 General Application is open between November 1st and February 5th.
  • To apply, you must sign in with the same user name and password you use to access your Radford University login portal.
  • When the general application is open, you will be able to complete and submit a new application or make changes and update the one you previously submitted.
  • After submitting your general application, you can see your application status on your dashboard. If your status is not listed as “submitted,” you have not fully completed your application.
  • Your general application will show as an icon, which you may open and continue to edit until the deadline.
  • After submitting your general application, you may see additional scholarship opportunities for which you have been matched. These apply-to opportunities are scholarships that require additional information from you beyond the general application. (Please note: you will not be able to see which scholarships your application has been auto-matched with and qualifying/matching with any scholarship opportunity does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.)
  • You may also view the entire list of scholarships by going to the opportunities tab and click on the “Ours” option from the drop down box. Those that have the black apply-to buttons beside them require an extra step to be considered. If you were not matched with an apply-to scholarship from the master list, something in your application or academic background does not match the scholarship.
  • If you are selected to receive a scholarship for 2022-2023, you will receive an email notification from foundscholar@radford.edu to your Radford email account in April 2022.
  • After April, keep a check on your Radford University email or view the portal for additional scholarship opportunities. New scholarships as well as scholarships that may need to be re-awarded may be awarded anytime throughout the year.

Sign-in to apply
When the general application is open, click the sign-in button on this page and enter your Radford University login credentials.

Compatibility
Internet Explorer is not a compatible web browser. For optimal compatibility, sign in using any newer browser, for example: Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.

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.(my.name.Resume.2020). Using punctuation will cause an error in trying to upload any of these supporting documents. Rename any file that includes these and don’t forget to click “Save and Keep Editing” after you select the file you wish to upload. Clicking “Finish and Submit” will submit your completed application for consideration.

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

Renewals
Most foundation scholarships require re-application each year. 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.
