Endowments and Scholarships

Gifts that Ensure Excellence

Faculty Endowments

Gifts for faculty endowments allow the university to recruit nationally recognized scholars to make an impact in the education of our students. It allows us to recognize and support the most fundamental part of our organization: our faculty.

Such generosity provides salary supplements as well as support for research and programming - critical factors in recruiting and retaining exceptional faculty members. Those scholars, in turn, bolster a university’s reputation for academic excellence and its ability to attract private support for research.

By endowing a faculty position, you can help Radford University raise the bar for academic excellence and position itself among the best colleges and universities in the nation.


As the value of a Radford University degree has increased over the years, so has its cost. Scholarships are vital in attracting the most promising students and empowering the university to maintain socioeconomic diversity.

Radford University is grateful for the generous scholarship support given by alumni, family and friends, and students are quick to acknowledge the role that financial support plays in their futures.
