RADFORD — The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Radford University a three-year, $13.8 million grant — the largest in the school’s history — to boost the training of specialized education in rural Appalachia.
The grant was announced during President Brian Hemphill’s state of the university address in Bondurant Auditorium Friday.
The money will go to a relatively new campus program called Innovative Mobile Personalized Accelerated Competency Training, which was created to provide workforce training in “high need” areas such as cybersecurity.
