Radford Rugby Alumni Scholarship 


The Alumni Scholarship was established in 2017 in order to reward student athletes who have dedicated their time to the betterment of Radford Rugby and their community. This award seeks to honor that stalwart player who through their dedication and hard work made the team better, attended community service events, maintained academic prowess, and is of good conduct. Their steadfast commitment distinguishes them as a backbone of the team.

This is a Radford University Foundation scholarship and as such, final selection of the award recipient(s) will be determined by the Radford University Vice President of Student Affairs.
