Give to Radford
The division that knits the campus together digitally and electronically to support the everyday functions of the university pulled together to create a scholarship for deserving students. The Division of Information Technology (DoIT) employees pooled their resources to help create a scholarship fund. The DoIT Employee Scholarship is funded through gifts by the 85-person DoIT personnel and other donors. Their fund is modeled after the long-standing Facilities Management scholarships that were created by more than 1,000 small gifts over more than three decades.

If your office would like to collectively support Radford University students, call the Office of University Advancement at (540) 831-5407
