Program Description:
Augustana University offers special study away scholarships in the range of $250-$1000 for Interim, Semester, or Summer approved programs. Competition is high and the quality of the materials you submit is very important in your potential to receive an award. Please read the eligibility requirements and procedures for application very carefully.
In examining the applications, the review committee will look for students who possess a focused plan for their experience off campus. Consideration will be prioritized to those with high financial need and participating in a first time travel experience. The information you provide should demonstrate your preparedness to be successful in your proposed program and the expectations you have of the experience affecting your life. Financial need is a factor in awarding these funds, but the strength of how you present yourself overall is key.
**Applications must be submitted online by the deadline posted. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.**
1) The scholarship is contingent upon acceptance in an approved program of study.
2) A GPA of 3.0 or higher is required.
3) The student must be in good social and academic standing.
