Award for Excellence in the Department of English

This scholarship was originated in 1982 by Lindsay McFadyen and several other members of the English department. Together, the faculty pooled their resources and created a private fund. It was established in order to reward a rising senior for consistent outstanding work in the department. The scholarship became endowed in 1985 by the Foundation and became an ongoing scholarship.

The scholarship contact is the Dean of the College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences, Dean Matthew Smith.

The recipient must be a full-time student of senior status by the beginning of fall semester for which the scholarship is received, be an English major (double majors are also eligible), have completed at least 30 hours of course work at Radford and must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA, and a minimum 3.5 GPA in English courses.
