Radiance: CSU Realizing the Promise

Since 2010, Radiance has raised more than $10 million and enabled more than 2,000 juniors and seniors to finish the last mile of school. Historically, Radiance supports success by securing scholarship dollars for students who are doing well academically and are working hard toward degree completion but face financial challenges that threaten their continued enrollment.

The pandemic, however, changed everything and our students need your support now more than ever.

Coronavirus-triggered job losses and business closures have heaped extra financial burdens on current and prospective CSU students. Because of this, Radiance has expanded to include financial assistance for students at every point of their CSU experience—not just the last mile. With a new, full spectrum of philanthropic opportunities, Radiance enables CSU to attract students, help them maintain momentum, and finish college.

Our annual event celebrating the sponsors and scholars of Radiance, was unfortunately canceled in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic, but this year we return in a whole new light. Virtually.

So, join us from the comfort of your own home Thursday, May 6, 2021 as we celebrate ten years of supporting student success.

Radiance is hosted by the Cleveland State University Foundation with the support of our sponsors. We also look forward to honoring Bridget & Bernie Moreno and Judy & Bob Rawson as recipients of the President’s Medal, CSU’s highest non-academic recognition.

Register today by filling out the short form at the bottom of this page. We will keep you up to date and send you the link to view the event.
