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.

Timelines and Additional Information

  • After submitting your general application, you will be able see your application status on your dashboard. If your status is not listed as “submitted,” you have not fully completed your application. Review to locate any missing information and make sure you sign and date your application.
  • Your general application will show as an icon, which you may open and continue to edit.
  • 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. If an apply-to scholarship seems to be a good match, click on the apply-to button to review instructions for next steps and and submit.
  • After submitting the general application, you may also be matched with several auto-match scholarships, based on whether you meet their requirements. Please note, you will not be able to see which auto-match scholarships you have been matched with.
  • The priority deadline was February 5th. Some scholarships will remain open for new applications, while others will be reviewed by faculty beginning in February. Awarding will be on-going throughout the spring/summer until all available awards can be made.
  • Be sure to 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.

Renewals

You must also continue to meet minimum requirements for the scholarship you have received.
