Andrew W. Ross Endowed Photography Scholarship

Scholarship Information

This scholarship was created in honor of Andrew Ross. Mr. Ross began teaching photography at Radford University in 2014. He had to step down from his position in 2018 after being diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Andrew Ross was committed to students and the program, including donating photography and printing equipment and reorganizing an art gallery in the McConnell Library. The gallery has been named the "Andrew W. Ross Student Art Gallery " in his honor.
